Msg.exe is only available in Windows 7 Business, Ultimate and Enterprise. I've heard that TSMsg.exe is a good alternative - you can find it by googling.

make sure you enable the messenger services in the services located at the services.msc and also to the other pc you want to delivered a message using net send....
