    Please get rid of that evil video! Just add the text. I am on a blocked computer (curses to the guy who invented family saftey) and cannot view the video! No offense.

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

    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

    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
