Message Queuing Error and Information Codes
Applies To: Windows 10, Windows 7, Windows 8, Windows 8.1, Windows Server 2008, Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows Server Technical Preview, Windows Vista
Error and information codes are returned in two ways: directly by Message Queuing functions and COM object methods, or via the optional aStatus array specified in an MQQUEUEPROPS, MQMSGPROPS, MQQMPROPS, or MQPRIVATEPROPS, structure.
The following error and information codes are defined in mq.h.
Returned when a nonspecific Message Queuing error occurs.
Returned when access to the specified queue or computer is denied.
When returned, verify that your are allowed the access rights for performing the operation on the applicable object (for example, creating, setting properties, or deleting a queue). To change the access rights of a queue, call MQSetQueueSecurity.
Returned when the security context specified by PROPID_M_SECURITY_CONTEXT is invalid.
Returned when the additional application-generated header elements (PROPID_M_SOAP_HEADER) for inclusion in the SOAP envelope of an SRMP message do not form a valid XML document.
When reading messages, the buffer supplied for a property is too small. In the case of the message body buffer, the portion of the message body that fits is copied to the buffer, but the message is not removed from the queue.
Returned when Message Queuing cannot create a certificate store for its internal certificate. This error is returned only when you do not have permission to manipulate your own profile.
Returned when Message Queuing cannot compute the hash value for validating an MSMQ 2.0 signature in an authenticated message.
Returned when an attempt is made to create an object that should be owned by a primary site controller and the operation cannot be performed.
Returned when an attempt is made to delete an object that is owned by a primary site controller and the operation cannot be performed.
Returned when the dynamic-link library Mqad.dll cannot be loaded.
Returned when the hash calculated from the message properties cannot be encrypted with the sender's private key to create an MSMQ 2.0 signature, for example, when an MSMQ 2.0 signature is requested for an authenticated message sent to a multiple-element format name or a distribution list.
Returned when the RPC server cannot impersonate the client application. The security credentials could not be verified.
Message Queuing cannot open the certificate store for its internal certificate. This error is returned only when you do not have permission to manipulate your own profile.
Returned when the security descriptor of the cryptographic key container cannot be modified.
Returned when an attempt is made to update an object that is owned by a primary site controller and the operation cannot be performed.
Returned when the sites where the computer resides cannot be resolved. The subnets in the network may not be configured correctly in Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) or one or more sites may not be configured with the appropriate subnet.
Returned when the sending application attempts to send a message with a request for authentication without a certificate or with a security context that does not include a certificate.
Returned when encryption is requested and the computer (source or destination) does not support encryption operations.
When this error is returned the encryption operation fails.
(MSMQ 1.0 only.) Returned when the Message Queuing-supplied internal certificate is corrupted.
Returned when the Microsoft® Internet Explorer personal certificate store is corrupted.
Returned when the file for the queue specified in the Lqs folder has been deleted because it was corrupted.

Returned when Message Queuing cannot retrieve the account information for the user.
Returned when Message Queuing cannot retrieve the SID from the thread access token or from the security context specified in the message.
(MSMQ 1.0 only.) Returned when the specified connected network (CN) cannot be deleted because it is defined in at least one other computer. Remove the CN from all CN lists and try again.
Returned when the number of dependent clients served by a Message Queuing server reaches its upper limit.
Returned when binding to the forest root fails.
This error usually indicates a problem in the DNS configuration.
Returned when an internal error in the directory service is issued.

Returned when Message Queuing cannot verify the MSMQ 2.0 signature in the message.
Returned when the specified format name buffer is too small to contain the format name of the queue.

Returned when an error occurs while trying to read a message from a queue residing on a remote computer.
Returned when Message Queuing cannot find the queue. Such queues include public queues not registered in the directory service and Internet queues that do not exist in the MSMQ namespace. This error is also returned when the user does not have sufficient permissions to perform the operation.
Returned when opening a queue for reading messages on a remote computer that is not available or when creating a cursor for a queue on a remote computer that is not available.
Returned when the buffer supplied for the result is too small.
MQLocateNext could not return at least one complete query result.

Returned when Message Queuing cannot enlist in the specified transaction.
Returned when Message Queuing cannot import the specified transaction.
Returned when the transaction operation sequence is incorrect.
While reading messages, one of the following actions was attempted within the context of a transaction:
An attempt was made to open a remote queue for read access.
An attempt was made to read a message from a nontransactional queue.
An attempt was made to read a message using a callback or overlap function.
For sending messages in MSMQ 1.0 and MSMQ 2.0, either the message is sent as part of a transaction and the destination queue is a nontransactional queue, or the message is not sent as part of a transaction and the destination queue is a transactional queue. In MSMQ 3.0, the loss of transactional messages sent to nontransactional queues or of nontransactional messages sent to transactional queues is reported in negative acknowledgment messages.
Returned when a write operation is attempted to the MSMQ Information Store (MQIS) and write operations are not allowed because a new MQIS server is being installed.
Returned when an attempt is made to use an MSMQManagement object before it is initialized.
Returned when the access mode specified when opening the queue is set to an invalid value, or the access mode and the share mode specified are not compatible.
Returned when information is requested for an AD DS object that is not an instance of a supported class.
Returned when the requested operation is not supported for the specified format name (for example, trying to delete a queue using a direct format name).
Returned when a computer operating in workgroup mode attempts to perform an operation that is not supported in workgroup mode.
Returned when the buffer supplied is too small to hold the user information returned.
Returned when an RPC request is sent to an independent client to perform an operation for a dependent client. A Message Queuing server is required.
Returned when a property specified has already been specified in the property identifier array.
When duplicate settings are found, the first entry is used, and subsequent settings are ignored.

Returned when the queue owner is not set in the SECURITY_INFORMATION structure during the processing of a call to MQSetQueueSecurity.
Returned when one or more of the properties passed resulted in a warning, but the operation completed.
Returned when a specified property is not valid for the operation being performed (for example, PROPID_M_SENDERID is not valid when it is specified in the message properties structure passed to MQSendMessage; this property is set by Message Queuing when sending messages).
Returned when a specified property is not supported by the operation being performed. The property is ignored.
