View Full Version : MS Message Queuing Install

I need to create a .NET installation which requires MSMQ. By checking the registry I can determine if MSMQ is allready installed. If MSMQ is not installed.. How can I automate the install of MSMQ, or launch the Add/Remove Windows Components Wizard?

This may or may not help...I am not that familiar with MSMQ

Thanks for the reply. That article referred to a Windows CE install.

I was able to run an unattended install of MSMQ on Windows 2000 Pro by using the System Optional Component Mananger (sysocmgr.exe). The knowlege base article may be found at:
