The service Message Queuing disappear after changing the MSMQ path

Created: 02 Jan 2013 • Updated: 02 Jan 2013 | 2 comments
This issue has been solved. See solution.


When launching the deployment scanner, i have the MSMQ warning message :

The following storage folder is on a system drive. StoreJournalPath: C:\Windows\System32\msmq\storage. We recommend that the MSMQ storage folders are located on a non-system drive.

I followed the steps bellow :

Stop all EV services.

Creat the folder E:\MSMQ\STORAGE

Computer Manager  -->  Service & Application  -->  Message Queuing  -->  All Task  -->  Take Message Queuing offline

Right click on Message Queuing then  -->  properties  -->  Storage (Tab)  -->  Enter the new path : E:\MSMQ\STORAGE  


And when i start Computer Manager  -->  Service & Application  i can't find Message Queing to bring it online  !!!

How can i overcome this problem.

It's OK,

When i  take Message Queuing offline and i change the path i click apply, Message Queuing Service restart  and fail to run, so i start it manully  and it work fine now.
