Batch file - how to message another user on same computer

Mon Jan 30, 2017 7:32 am

I am on Windows 7 Home Premium using IFW. I have successfully gotten the IFWRotate script working, and put it in a Task to run every day. I created the script while logged on as an Administrator; however I do all my normal work in a Standard User account (doing that tightens security).

When IFW starts, I do not get a message in my Standard User account that IFW has started. I would like such a message.

How to get the script to message me? Remember I am on the same computer that is running the script.
The version of Windows 7 I am on does NOT have the cmd MSG (Enterprise edition of Win7 does), nor does it have the Windows XP cmd NET SEND (both of which do what I want).
I am OK with downloading a program if that is what it takes.

!!Thanks!!

Can you create the Scheduled Task while a Standard User?

The IFW manual says it is better to do it as an Administrator. So I did that.

TBI Notify tells you when it starts with a pop up.

The notification from TBI does NOT appear when I am logged on as Standard User. Tonite IFW ran at 5:30pm, started by the script which was started by Task Scheduler. At 7:20pm, by which time IFW was well completed, I logged onto the Admin account (which I used to create the Task). The TBI notification did NOT appear there.
