Hey guys,

I am trying to create using a bat file as part of my script that executes the msg.exe command to relay a message to our users but its not working. I am new to KACE and wandering is it due to the fact that Windows stopped supporting net send and switched to msg.exe?

FYI all my other bat files are working correctly. I cannot even do a simple msg.exe %username% hello world.

Any suggestions?

I know this is an old question but I ran into it as well. In my case it looks like a mismatch between 32 bit and 64 bit Windows applications. Instead of running "msg %username% hello world" in my batch files I switched to "C:\Windows\Sysnative\msg.exe %username% hello world". Again in my case it doesn't work from the command prompt but it does work if ran from a batch file as part of an online kscript.
