public class MsmqException : ExternalException

This exception can be thrown when the Message Queuing channel interacts with a message queue, including opening a queue, querying a queue for information, sending messages, and receiving messages.

The exception contains the Message Queuing error code. Typically, this exception is thrown when the framework cannot recover from the error automatically and requires some human intervention. For example, this exception will be thrown if Message Queuing is not installed and an attempt is made to open the Message Queuing transport listener.
