Can't enable Message Queuing Service for Windows XP SP3

Dear Experts,

Hopefully this is an easy question, but it's completely baffling to me. I used to have message queuing turned on on my computer because a .net program I'd written uses it to communicate between it's service and user-side program. I need to turn it back on but when I follow these steps I get stuck on the dialog where it's all: "Setup did not locate a suitable domain controller or controller server"

I have no idea what to put here. I've tried it with and without the checkbox and it didn't work. I tried typing in the name of my computer 'development' and it couldnt' find that either. Then I tried some of the names of the servers on my network and it didn't work.

Basically I don't know what to do.

Thanks! ~Michael
Steps I was trying to follow, but to be honest I don't know what version of MSMQ is actually in service pack 3.
 

Follow these steps to install MSMQ 2.0 on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows 2000 and Microsoft Windows XP: 

In Control Panel, double-click the Add/Remove Programs icon.

On the left tab of the Add/Remove Programs window, click Add/Remove Windows Components.

Once the Windows Components Wizard opens, click to select the Message Queuing Services item. Click Next.
 

This will start the MSMQ 2.0 setup process. Your Windows 2000 and Windows XP installation CD-ROM, network share, or install point must be available.

MSMQ will display an installation dialog box. You will be prompted to install either an MSMQ server or a dependent client. Click Message Queuing Server.

MSMQ will then search for a Domain Controller with MSMQ installed. If MSMQ doesn't find a domain controller automatically, it will display a dialog box requesting the "Name of the computer running MSMQ." You can type in the name of a Windows 2000 and Windows XP Domain Controller.

You can also choose to install MSMQ 2.0 in Workgroup mode (by selecting Message Queuing Will Not Access a Directory Service), but this alters the behavior of Queued Components.For additional information, click the article number below to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

So it used to work and then stopped.

Was this due to the SP3 upgrade or something else.

What has changed ?

Why the need to reinstall ?

I hope this helps !I hope this helps !

SysExpert:

Yeah, the reason it stopped working is definitly that I had to reinstall windows xp. I'd gotten this spyware/virus program I couldn't get rid of any other way. Then the SP3 I don't think I had before but I'm actually not certain about that, but after I reinstalled windows (off the partition on my hd) I let windows update run everything it could.. So I think that's where it came from.

I guess the issue I have now with configuring it is I can't figure out what settings to put in the dialogbox that comes up saying that it needs a domain controller (whatever that is:) . The box actually says:
"Setup did not locate a suitable domain controller or controller server
Specify a Windows XP domain controller, a Windows 200 domain controller, or an MSMQ 1.0 PEC or PSC."
Then it has a box where you're supposed to put something, and then underneath that a checkbox which says:
"Authenticate MSMQ 1.0 controller servers".
So that's where I'm stuck..

Did you read the documentation ?

Is there a Domain controller on your netwrk ? ( are you part of a Domain or a workgroup )

I hope this helps !

Ok I finally figured this out. I was just trying to set it up on my own computer, but it kept thinking I was looking for something else (ie the domain controller) I guess the key is to go to the message queuing and then, oddly you can edit the details on all the individual components of the message queuing. One of them needed to be not enabled to set it up on just one computer that is.. Active Directory Integration (whatever that is:). So by disabling that the message queuing happily installed.. :)

Sweet, so, thanks for the help SysExpert! `M
