Pinned topic MQ Explorer not showing local Queue Manager (work only one time)

‏2012-10-27T11:12:16Z |
Hi,

I installed WebSphere MQ 7.5 on windows 7 system. I installed both server and client on the system.
(it is actually behaving the same when i installed only server).

After the install, I start MQ explorer and create a queue manager locally
(I have access to New Queue Manager option when right clicking on Queue Manager node, etc).
Everuthing looks good.

Then I close the explorer, and restart it right away.
The queue manager I created is not visible (it does still exist as I can connect to it).
Also I cannot even select New Queue manager option anymore (it’s like it switch to client version somehow).
I can only connect to a remote queue

I reboot and it is the same. I can’t see my QueueManager.
I tried to re-install server only and it is same behavior.

Below is the info regarding MQ Explorer version installed:
MQ Explorer 7.5.0.201206051450 com.ibm.mq.explorer.ui.rcp.product

If anybody has a idea on what's going on, that will be really appreciated.

Thanks

    I found the problem to this issue.

    MQ Explorer need to be run as Administrator.
    Once i do that, i can see my local queues.

    I found it pretty confusing that the frst time you can actually do whatever you want and issue appear
    only once application is restarted.
    I would be good to dump some messages in logs or something.

    Anyway, i have the solution which is good.

    Did you find a way to resolve this issue without running as administrator?
