Re: Re: Help with msg.exe in winvista!!

I?m afraid there is no net send command in Windows 7 and Vista. So we start to use Bigant messenger to create a private chat group inside house since they offer 10users free license.

I have vista home premium, and saw that you have gotta use msg.exe instead of
the 'net send' option in win xp, but when typed in cmd and the search bar, it
says that
"'msg' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable
program or batch file."

Any help?? I have activated all the advanced services (e.g. telnet etc.)

If you have moved on to Vista and go looking for the Net Send command, you
are not going to find it. This is because the command has been replaced
with MSG.EXE. To launch the command: click on the Start button, type CMD
in the search box and press Enter. The Command Prompt window will appear
where you can send a message using MSG.EXE. For additional information
about MSG.EXE, type msg /? at the command prompt and press Enter.
Or your may choose a business-level LAN messenger like 'BigAnt
Corporate Messenger' ( for an alternative.
