This property identifies the computer.

  • Type Indicator
  • Property Values
    Machine GUID.


The PROPID_QM_MACHINE_ID property is set by MSMQ when the computer is defined. It is used when specifying the format name of a private queue, a machine journal, or a dead-letter queue.

To determine the identifier of the machine, pass PROPID_QM_MACHINE_ID to MQGetMachineProperties and examine its returned value.

For dependent clients, MSMQ sets this property to the identifier of the client's server computer.


This example shows how PROPID_QM_MACHINE_ID is specified in the MQQMPROPS structure.

aQMPropId[I] = PROPID_QM_MACHINE_ID;         // Property identifier
aQMPropVar[I].vt = VT_CLSID;                 // Type indicator
aQMPropVar[I].puuid = &guidMachineId;        // Machine ID buffer
