WinMessenger is an easy to use program that allows you to send and receive messages from computer to computer in real-time without using dedicated servers. It works over any network protocol (TCP/IP, IPX/SPX, NetBEUI, etc.), it is easy to deploy and it does not require computer knowledge or special configuration. WinMessenger will work on your existing network immediately after installation!
Some of WinMessenger™s features:
WinMessenger is ceritified Designed for Microsoft Windows XP, 2000, Me, 98, Windows NT application
Some software makers claim that their messaging programs provide standard WinPopup compatibility, but they implement only the most basic type of SMB protocol (for example, in such software you can't send a message to a username or to a non-Windows operating system).
WinMessenger offers complete implementation of the SMB protocol, so with it you can do everything you can with WinPopup. For example, you can send a message to a Novell user, receive messages from Linux systems, send and receive messages to/from Windows NT servers and so on.
Available for all Windows platforms
WinMessenger works exceptionally well under all existing implementations of Windows without any updates or upgrades required — from the original release of Windows 95 to the latest Windows XP. Moreover, it takes full advantage of the OS on which it is installed. For example, when you install it on Windows 98, WinMessenger has a flat toolbar. When you install it on Windows Me it also features balloon tray tips. And, in Windows XP it comes with completely new look that matching latest user interface design.
Easy, straightforward user interface without an overload of bells and whistles
WinMessenger looks and acts exactly like Microsoft™s standard WinPopup. There are no seldom-used features or confusing settings. We replaced only the annoying things about WinPopup (such as the taskbar button and it™s non-resizable window), but stayed true to the useful functionality of the original. Simply put, it is WinPopup without the blemishes.
It works in the system tray (notification area)
WinMessenger does not crowd the Windows taskbar — it work in the system tray near the clock.
Minuscule memory and disk footprint
WinMessenger is a highly optimized, compact program. It requires less than 700 KB of hard disk space and under 600 KB of memory! Compare it with the voracious appetites of our competitor™s programs.

You don™t have to remember the keystroke — just click the emoticon you would like to send to a friend.
WinMessenger is 32-bit software
You may be unfamiliar with the internal architecture of Microsoft WinPopup. Curiously, the WinPopup program you find in 32-bit operating systems like Windows 95 and Windows 98 is only a 16-bit application! Basically, it™s a Microsoft quickie design: Windows developers simply took WinPopup™s code from Windows 3.1 (a 16-bit operating system), then plopped it into their 32-bit operating systems. Unlike WinPopup, WinMessenger is a true 32-bit application that takes every advantage of modern 32-bit software.
Fully Unicode compliant on Windows NT/2000/XP
WinMessenger comes as a compliant Unicode application when installed in a Windows OS that supports Unicode (Windows NT/2000 or XP/2003). This means that there are no problems with mixed language texts and multi-byte characters. Additionally, WinMessenger will run seamlessly in these versions of Windows.
