eConnect 18 Prerequisites: Install MSMQ Triggers

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM has now been released and I am in the middle of a series of Hands On posts. As part of thsat series, I am about to cover the installation of the eConnect additional product on a server configured for receiving messages via the MSMQ. However, there are two prerequisites which need to be dealt with before eConnect can be installed on the server.

Usually, when doing Hands On posts, I only cover the core installs and only mentioned prerequisites such as this, referring back to old posts were necessary, but it appears I’ve only made references previously to what you have to do, without actually blogging about it. So, this series on the eConnect prerequisites, is going to be a brief diversion from the Hands On series, which will resume tomorrow.

The eConnect 18 Prerequisites series index can be found here.

Before eConnect can be installed and configured to receive messages from the Microsoft Message Queue, the Message Queuing Triggers need to be installed. This is done via Server Manager:

Click Add roles and features link:

Click Next on the Before you begin step:
