Remarks

You can use this overload to create a transactional queue in Message Queuing. You can create a non-transactional queue, by setting the transactional parameter to false or by calling the other overload of Create(String).

To create a new instance of the MessageQueue class in your application and bind it to an existing queue, use the MessageQueue constructor. To create a new queue in Message Queuing, call Create(String).

The syntax for the path parameter depends on the type of queue it references, as shown in the following table.

Queue type Syntax
Public queue MachineName\QueueName
Private queue MachineName\Private$\QueueName

Use "." for the local computer. For more syntax, see the Path property.
