Q: I want to use MessagePopup II in my office. Can I use it in my office.
A: Yes, anyone can use it anywhere (home/company/public office).
But can not sell this program with money.
Q : Do I need to know other user's IP?
A : No. If your network is working. just Install it on the computer where user want to communicate.
Q : Which network is possible to communicate?
A : Check [Gear]button-> network tab -> my network.
X.X.X.255 X.X.X is my network.
These computers that use same my network can communicate with just install.
If some computers use different network (ex. X.X.K.255), input X.X.K.255 to different network
in the [Gear]button-> network tab -> different network. And In opposite computers, input X.X.X.255
Q : In users list, some users are not displayed.
A : 1.First, check that MessagePopup version is 3.X. Because,2.X is not compatible with 3.X
2.Check [Gear]button-> network tab -> my network. Is 'my network' same?
3.Dos command . ping [opposite ip]. Do you receive reply well?
If not, that computer has some network problem.
4.If one program uses same UDP port with MessagePopupII, Change communication group
In [Gear]button-> network tab to 'B' ~ 'F'
After close MessagePopup,In Dos command. 'netstat -a'. Check what port are using.
5. Since version from Window XP, use the Windows Firewall.
The firewall block program uses the network.
So, to use the MessagePopup, you must allow access the personal network in Firewall.
By default, when you first install a MessagePopup, the window that you can allow access private networks pops up.
(XP) Click Unblock / (Win10, etc) check boxes of private and public network and click Allow access.
If you did not allow access permission at first executing, users list is not listed.
Solution 1) Windows Control Panel (Start-Control Panel, In case win10, right click Start icon- Control Panel)
-Security Center (System and Security) - Firewall
XP -Firewall : Exceptions tab - check on box of MsgPopup, If do not have MsgPopup in the list,
click Add Program, add MsgPopup
Win10, Etc- firewall : allow an app through firewall- click Change settings
- check on boxes of MsgPopup name, private public
(if MsgPopup not in the list, click Allow another app - Add MsgPopup)

Q : In our network, there are some people who do not want to communicate with our users.
But, after install this program all, their user names are displayed in our users list.
How to protect their names from our user lists?
A : Change your Communication group to not A but B(or ~F) " In [Gear]button-> network tab "
All users who want to communicate with each other should change to B comm group.
Then, only same Comm group ('B')will be displayed in your users list.
Because, default Communication Group is 'A'.
Q : I want to preserve config and log files from deleting when install msgpopup.

Everything are deleted completely.
If do not want that, just exit by right clicking exit menu on system tray icon.
And Install MsgPopup program. Then All Files are preserved from deleting.
Q : I want to move MsgPopup to a new computer.
A : 1. Compress All files on MessagePopup Directory (Default C:\Program Files\MessagePopup).
(If you changed Down dir, backup that directory separately)
2. Install MessagePopup II on New computer.

MessagePopup do not handle Windows Registry. so can move msgpopup easily simply.
