Acucobol and Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ)

I've recently been looking at implementing message queues to be shared between a number of acu run units. I'm developing for Windows 10 (Acu 8.1.1), and it looks like MSMQ would be the best messaging option for me (since it's already licensed).

I know that some people have already used MSMQ with acucobol as there's an old thread from 2005 giving code examples and making reference to an msmq.def generated by Axdefgen from the MSMQ libraries, but I've been unable to point Axdefgen at said libraries as they aren't appearing in the libraries listbox.

Anyone else using MSMQ? I'd be grateful for any advice.

RE: Acucobol and Microsoft Message Queuing (MSMQ)

It is likely that with Windows 10 that MSMQ is no longer anActiveX control, but a .Net assembly .
Open Control Panel.Click Programs and then, under Programs and Features, click Turn Windows Features on and off.
Expand Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) Server, expand Microsoft Message Queue (MSMQ) Server Core, and then select the check boxes for the following Message Queuing features to install.

Then use NetDefGen to find the MSMQ assembly and create the def file and event file as well.
