When you try to enable the Queuing functionality for a COM+ application on a computer where MSMQ is installed as a Dependent Client, the COM+ catalog may show an error indicating that it couldn't find a specified service, and log the following COM+ error in the Application Event Log:
The run-time environment has detected the absence of a critical resource and has caused the process that hosted it to terminate. OpenService Server Application ID: {02D4B3F1-FD88-11D1-960D-00805FC79235} Server Application Name: System Application Error Code = 0x80070424 : The specified service does not exist as an installed service. COM+ Services Internals Information: File: .\msmqrt.cpp, Line: 689


The COM+ run-time environment is attempting to start the Message Queuing service on a computer that is configured as an MSMQ Dependent Client. This process doesn't work correctly (fails) because the Message Queuing service is not installed on an MSMQ Dependent Client.
