Installing Message Queueing in Windows 7

by Heathesh 29. October 2009 22:38

This is a fix to the problem when you try and create a new private queue in MSMQ that says: "Message Queue service is not available." I started with the install process just to cover all my bases, but if you've already installed MSMQ and are getting the error simply find the "Message Queuing" service and change the "Log On" type to "Local System Account", and restart the service.

Installing the MSMQ

Open the Control Panel, select "Programs" --> "Turn Windows features on or off"
Tick the "Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) Server" Checkbox and click "Okay"

Changing the log on account

Once the service has been installed, open the Control Panel, select "System and Security" --> "Administrative Tools" --> "Services"
Find the "Message Queuing" service, right click and select "Properties"
Select "Log On", and change this to "Local System Account", click "Apply" and then "Okay"
Now, right click the "Message Queuing" service and select "Restart"

Checking the service

Once the service has been restarted, you will be able to see which queues etc. you have by opening "Control Panel" --> "System and Security" --> "Administrative Tools" -- >"Computer Management" and expanding "Services and Applications" --> "Message Queuing"
