      Nope, the Win9x line (95,98,ME) does NOT support the Messenger service, so no Net Send messages to them.
      You need a 3rd party app to make this work.
      Here is one to try:

      hope this helps

      That’s right, Windows 9x clients do not have a Messenger service by default. I think that you should have Winpopup already installed (it comes with the operating system, I believe), so all you woul dneed to do is put a shortcut to it in the startup folder – and tell your users not to close it, so they can receive messages from you.

      Hope this helps.
