We are in a Windows Server 2003 LAN environment running Windows XP workstations.
We are upgrading to Windows 7 workstations. We used to use 'NetSend' to send messages to our XP machines. NetSend no longer works in Windows 7. I read where MSG.exe has to be used for Windows 7.
When I send a message to a windows 7 PC from a Windows XP PC using the following command: 'C:\msg BHSPC_NEW Hi' I receive an error
Error: BHSPC_New does not exist or is diconnected.
I can VNC into the PC & also ping computer name. Also, Firewall is off
Does the Windows 7 machine need certain services to receive the message? Are there good freeware programs out there to send messages from XP to Windows 7 & vice versa?
