Message Queuing Sample Applications

 

Updated: July 19, 2016

Applies To: Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server Technical Preview, Windows Vista

The Microsoft® Platform SDK includes the complete source code for several Message Queuing sample applications that illustrate how to implement Message Queuing. You can obtain the source code for these samples by downloading the Core SDK from the SDK Update Site. After the installation process is completed, you will find the samples in the subfolders under the \Program Files\Microsoft SDK\samples\netds\Message Queuing folder on the drive where the SDK software is installed. The names of the subfolders correspond to the names of the samples.

These Message Queuing sample applications include the following:
