NET SEND/MSG.EXE Alternatives

I'm looking for a utility to read NET SEND/MSG.EXE messages on a Windows 10 Home computer and when it receives a message it needs to run an application. Any ideas?

Dave, do you know what an event triggered task is?
The windows task scheduler can execute things for you and this msg-message creates an event in the application event log (event ID 26). The task could be triggered by that event and execute anything you like.

Correction to McKnife's comment: It's the System event log, not Application.

Funny... to make sure, I even opened eventvwr, went to the application log - not there - went to the system log...there it is... but I still wrote "application" :-) Correct, it's the system log.
You can solve this issue by installing any LAN  messenger like this one , it perfectly replace netsend/msg commands and supports  systems from Win XP to Windows 10.
Why use external tools?
