Computer Properties for Message Queuing


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 properties of a Message Queuing computer contain the settings that define the messaging behavior of the computer. Computer properties consist of two groups of properties: queue manager and private computer properties.

Unlike queue and message properties, computer properties cannot be set programmatically. Applications processing queue manager and private computer properties can only retrieve these properties.

Message Queuing uses an MQQMPROPS structure to define queue manager properties and a MQPRIVATEPROPS structure to define private computer properties. When using API function calls, these structures must be explicitly declared by the application that is retrieving the queue manager or private computer properties. When using COM component calls, these structures are declared and populated implicitly by Message Queuing when the application references the properties of the MSMQApplication object.

The MSMQApplication object does not support the following queue manager properties. To retrieve these properties the application must call the MQGetMachineProperties function.
