Thank you
You can try msg command. Here is simple command syntax to send message to other computer. It will work if you send message to other computers in same Windows domain.

msg /server:[computername] console [your-message]

Hope this helps.

+1 for net send

but doesn't exist in Windows Vista / Windows Seven, replaced by MSG
and MSG command is only available on ultimate and business versions !

if you need a lan messenger anyway you have others tools such as Winmessenger ( or dMessage (

but it's not free, depends on your needs ... :/

Hi there,

For sending messages on Lan you will have the instructions as well as the download link of required application for it on link below from Faq:

For sending via command line,have this followed:

press start+r key,type cmd press on ok,now command is net send (pc name or ip address) (your message).

this does not work anymore...
