I have read just about every thread when it comes to this MSMQ error message: "Invalid queue path name".
Additionally, I have tried various combinations of the path to no avail. Perhaps I have an outstanding issue that I'm hoping someone can help me with.
I developed two simple applications: Client (to listen to queues) & Server (to create queues and send messages). When I run the applications side by side on a local machine, it works just fine. When I move my Server piece to my Windows 2008 Server, my Client gets the above error message.
My laptop is on the same domain [DEVELOPMENT] and when my client gets the list of queues by machine name (DEV-WINSVR2008), it lists them just fine. So I'm assuming my laptop can see my server.
When I set the path to:
DEVELOPMENT\Private$\svrQ - doesn't work
DIRECT=OS:DEVELOPMENT\Private$\svrQ - doesn't work
DEV-WINSVR2008\Private$\svrQ - doesn't work
DIRECT=OS:DEV-WINSVR2008\Private$\svrQ - doesn't work
Only the local (.\) is working. One think I noticed in VB2010, when I connect to my server and try to drag the servers message queue to the form, I get another error telling me that it cannot find the specified machine.
Could someone help me through either checking my configuration settings on my server/network, etc... or help me with my code?
I appreciate your help.
