Hey there all, got another MS-DOS question coming at ya.How do you send a message to another computer in MS-DOS? And how would you do it for Windows 7? It doesn't seem to be accurate.Here's what I picked up so far:--@echo off:AClsecho MESSENGERset /p n=User:set /p m=Message:net send %n% %m%PauseGoto A--I heard you need to know their ip address, even if you know it, where would it go to make sure you sent it to someone? Can anyone help make sense of this?This is supposed to send a message using an ip, just don't know where it goes lol.

Windows Vista and onward don't have the messenger service any more, you need to find another one (or write your own!).

MSG.EXE replaces Net Send in Windows Vista
XP:Net send pcname "Please contact help desk immediately!"
VistaC:'msg /server:servername pcname "Please contact help desk immediately!"
You could use a third-party net send replacement...http://www.winsentmessenger.com/ Edited by student101

Dude have you pressed F1 in Vista, then typed "netsend" or "net send" or even "msg" ?Better yet!http://www.fomine.com/net-send-gui.html

Net Send in Windows Vista C:\Windows\system32>msg /?Send a message to a user. MSG {username | sessionname | sessionid | @filename | *} [/sERVER:servername] [/TIME:seconds] [/V] [/W] [message] username Identifies the specified username. sessionname The name of the session. sessionid The ID of the session. @filename Identifies a file containing a list of usernames, sessionnames, and sessionids to send the message to. * Send message to all sessions on specified server. /SERVER:servername server to contact (default is current). /TIME:seconds Time delay to wait for receiver to acknowledge msg. /V Display information about actions being performed. /W Wait for response from user, useful with /V. message Message to send. If none specified, prompts for it or reads from stdin. C:\msg /server:servername console "You're machine needs to be rebooted."
