Setting Up MSMQ Queue Notifications

Before you set up MSMQ queue notifications, you must install MSMQ, and then configure a private queue for SOLIDWORKS Workgroup PDM called PDMWorks. See Microsoft MSMQ documentation for instructions.

To set trigger options:

  1. In the Workgroup PDM VaultAdmin dialog box, click the Triggers tab.
  2. Select Allow notifications.
  3. Browse to or type the name of the computer on which you installed MSMQ under Hostname.
    SOLIDWORKS recommends that you install MSMQ on the same computer on which you installed the vault. Type the hostname of the computer on which you installed the vault in Hostname.

    The hostname of the computer on which you installed MSMQ is stored in the registry string HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\SOLIDWORKS\SOLIDWORKS version\PDMWorks\Server\MSMQ Format Name on the server on which vault was installed.

  4. Under Notifications (detailed below), select the events for which you want to set triggers.
  5. Click Apply.
