popup messages

While Windows 2000, XP, and NT4 have a service that runs by default to
accept and display those broadcast messages, Win 3.11 through WinMe do not
have such a service. Therefore, you have to load the winpopup.exe program on
each machine in order for it to receive such messages. If you need to do
this for a large number of PCs, you may wish to have winpopup.exe loaded
from a logon script.

Hope that helps,
