C-C++ Code Example: Enforcing Encryption


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

The following example provides an application-defined function that creates a queue that accepts private encrypted messages only.

  1. Define the required constants and variables.

  2. Define the MQQUEUEPROPS structure.

  3. Specify the queue properties used to create the queue. This example sets the following properties.

  4. Initialize the MQQUEUEPROPS structure.

  5. Call MQCreateQueue to create the queue. The format name returned by this queue can be used later to open the queue.

Code Example

The following code example can be run on all versions of Message Queuing.
