This will not work on Windows 7, Vista, ME, 95, 98
the net send command isn't supported by that version

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

ErrorMessage made it! (author)2009-06-19

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
