I need to build an application like winpopup message.

Note : The machines which exchange messages over the network run WIN95.

They should be able to receive and send messages to Machines, users or groups. And also receive messages from other machines which run the Winpopup.

It works with NT. However both machines use win95.

How could I use Mailslot, as winpopup does ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Mirkwood - I tried your solution :
 "Sends message from NT 4.0 to NT 4.0 or Win95 running winpopup"
from http://www.geocities.com/SiliconValley/Peaks/1797/ 

But the machine doesn't have NT, It's logged on NT.

Could get me a hand using MailSlots. I'd like to build an application to send and receive messages from Winpopup as http://www.experts-exchange.com/jsp/qShow.jsp?ta=vbcontrols&qid=10095936

dim clsMailSlot as class_MailSlot
set clsMailSlot = new class_MailSlot
call clsMailSlot.Create("yourmailsot")
call clsMailSlot.MailWrite("Hello, how are you")
set clsMailSlot = nothing

In other process
dim clsMailSlot as class_MailSlot
set clsMailSlot = new class_MailSlot
call clsMailSlot.Create("yourmailsot")
Debug.Print clsMailSlot.Mailread()
set clsMailSlot = nothing
