the *phone*?
if you meant "computer" then you may want something like playSMS
(Linux only, I think)

invoking gnokii.exe wouldn't be reliable and possibly inefficient for
a number of reasons, eg you need to keep alive some types of
connections else the phone stops them and starting and stopping a
connection takes time and sometimes fails

do you know smsd? It is a daemon that sends and receives SMS.

There is one smsd provided with gnokii, I don't know what it takes to
port it to Windows to take advantage of cross platform compatibility,
probably not more than writing a new application from scratch (note
that the database backends can be disabled at configure time so you
can begin with just the file module)
