Problem summary

  • ****************************************************************
    USERS AFFECTED:
    Users using WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5 clients.
    
    
    Platforms affected:
    Windows
    
    ****************************************************************
    PROBLEM SUMMARY:
    The windows service 'IBM MQSeries' gets created while installing
    WebSphere MQ 7.1 and 7.5 clients. However, an attempt to start
    the service will fail with the following error.
    "Windows could not start IBM MQseries service on local computer"
    "Error2:System cannot find the file specified".
    
    The WebSphere MQ process amqsvc.exe that is run when the IBM
    MQSeries service is started is not installed with WebSphere MQ
    clients. The executable for this process is copied to the bin
    directory only if the WebSphere MQ server is installed.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The WebSphere MQ code is modified such that the IBM MQSeries
    service is created only if the WebSphere MQ server is installed.
