Windows Messenger

Recommended Posts

I don't know jack about Windows Messenger...

I'd like a remote server to use Windows Messenger to let everyone know the server is online; however, I don't want somebody to see it or use it when remotely connected to the server.

I would need to set Windows Messenger to busy, hide the Systray Icon, and prevent any instance from appearing on the taskbar.

Any ideas?

You may possibly perform such tasks using AU3; try to use AU3Info.exe and scan Windows Messenger to find the appropriate controls you want to manipulate. Then try scripting using the Control* functions. The helpfile is the place to start.

You could use the command line "net send" to send your message.

I doubt NET SEND will work. The server is off-site and not on our corporate network

are you able to ping the server when it's not online?

That's what I have right now...ping script to check off-site server status...I'd seen how another corporation was using Windows Messenger to monitor real-time server status.
