Recreate message queues

Mulitcast listener failed on one or more files. This may indicate that the store is corrupt. Try deleting the queues (through the file system or the directory service) for which such errors are generated, and then restart Message Queuing. Before you delete a queue, make sure that the queue is empty and that Message Queuing is offline.

To perform these procedures, you must have membership in Administrators, or you must have been delegated the appropriate authority.

  2. In the console tree, expand Services and Applications.
  3. Right-click Message Queuing, point to All Tasks, and then click Take Message Queuing Offline.
  4. Right-click the desired queue, and then click Delete.

Restart Message Queuing and recreate a queue

To restart Message Queuing and recreate a queue:

  1. Open the Services snap-in. To open Services, click Start. In the search box, type services.msc, and then press ENTER.
