Hi
Im using Win 2K Pro (not sure if that matters) but I try to do this in a .vbs file and it seems to open a command prompt real quick and then not do a netsend at all.

If I do
cmd
net send pc024 test
I do get a message

But not with my code below.

Set objShell = Wscript.CreateObject("WScript.Shell")
Comp2Reach = pc024
Message2Send = "test"
objShell.Run "net send " & Comp2Reach & " " & Message2Send

Thank!

Hi,

Doesn't this:

Comp2Reach = pc024

need to be this:

Comp2Reach = "pc024"

I am guessing that the Comp2Reach is a string?

Regards,

Lee
