how to Backup/Restore MSMQ queues ?

Hi,

I would like to iterate all queues on one computer and save their names and properties in a file so I can create them later.
In order to start the process, I have to get some kind of cursor to iterate through all of the queues. How's that possible ?
Or if any of you guys have another idea ...

I don't know anything about MSMQ.  I did trewad this though..

Private queues are registered on the local computer and typically cannot be seen by other applications.

which would tend to indicate that the word 'private' is used to mean 'not available to the general public' which kind of makes sense....

This looks promising:
The MSMQ Component Set
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/library/en-us/dnprodcom/html/themsmqcomponentset.asp

The sample code there uses LookupQueue, passing in empty Variant for all params.  That seems to return a MSMQQueueInfos that can be used to enumerate the queues.  It sounds like you already know how to peek through the queues to get the messages.
