The Messages services needs to be enabled for this.

Go to configuration panel > computer management > services and be sure that it is enabled on both computers.

Unfortunatly for your wishes to annoy someone with messages, this most likely means your plans aren't gonna work this time around :-)

Say "Thank you" 46

A few words of thanks would be greatly appreciated. Add comment

Net Send doesn not exist anymore in windows 7 nor Vista.

Free replacement is MSG.EXE

Check it out ! But it does not work between XP and 7 computers for example.

You still have other applications such as LAN Messenger or dMessage.
