The instructions for using Message Manager Deluxe only specify how to imlpement it via a login script. There are many different ways to use Message Manager Deluxe within your organization. This will explain some other options for running Message Manager Deluxe.

  1. Remotely running
    • If the target computer is Windows 2000, 2003 or XP you can enable Remote Desktop on the computer.
    • Next would be to get the Remote Desktop Connection Software from Microsoft to connect to the remote computer.
    • Then you can connect to the remote computer and you will see the desktop
    • Copy the loadmsg.exe and the message.dat file from the network or a shared location to the hard drive.
    • Lastly you can launch loadmsg.exe from that folder to show the user the message.


    • Another option is to use Real VNC to remotely connect to the desktop and launch our Message Manager Deluxe software.
  2. Push from server to client
    • Many of our customers have software on every client computer which allows them to push/install software remotely. You can use this feature to show loadmsg.exe
    • Here are some examples of other software programs that support this feature: Deployment Solution, LANDesk, Net Install, EverDream. You can also find software via this Google Search
  3. Windows Startup
    • Note: For this example you must have access to the target computer.
    • First copy loadmsg.exe and the message you want to load to a network share, cd, floppy disk, or other media.
