@echo off
:A
Cls
echo MESSENGER
set /p n=User:
set /p m=Message:
msg send %n% %m%
Pause
Goto A

if u gots vista
i got it but it said that the syntax of the command was and then it said NET with a list of things then it said hit any key to continue
If you are using Vista or Windows 7, the syntax for the network messaging command has changed. Instead of: net send [IP address] ["message"] Vista and windows 7 use 'msg' so change the line to: msg %n% %M% and that should work

I just hate it when people say they put a video and just put a blank screen!
it isnt blank.
but i can watch it....................
yes it is...
Of course it doesn't work!
the variable "M" and "m" ore two different things
the right code should be:

@echo off
:a
echo messenger
set /p n=user/IP:
set /p M=Message:
net send %n% %M%
pause
goto a
