This topic provides guidelines for solving problems associated with installing (or uninstalling) Message Queuing.
If you encounter installation problems, always inspect the setup log files first. This is especially important when you perform an unattended setup because you will not know if something went wrong. Specify the location of the log file during unattended setup with the /log parameter of the Windows Optional Component Setup program ocsetup.exe. By default, setup writes information to the CBS.log file which is located in the %WinDir%\Logs\CBS\ folder.
%WinDir% is a placeholder for the location of the Windows directory.
