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.
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:
