Balloon Messages

  • I have a request from users that I have a message when we have performed maintenance on their computers. I would like a balloon message like Microsoft uses when a computer has rebooted due to an update. I would only run this when need so that it would not be an aggravation to users. It would be nice to be able to change the message in the balloon when needed. Anyone have a program or know where to get one that will do this? ThanksCool

  • You can use Growl for Windows, they have what they call "growlnotify" which uses the command-line to create and popup a notification.

    Of course you can create a Kaseya script to send it out as well...or put it on a schedule or whatever.

    You could use PowerShell.

  • Good one!

    It will look more professional and less intrusive than a Kaseya Pop-Up.

  • Hi,

    Was looking for a way to show balloon-tips on all versions of Windows and found Notifu (http://www.paralint.com/projects/notifu/index.html). Works like a charm ;-)
