QueueExplorer 3.0 Standard and Professional released

We released new major version of QueueExplorer. Here’s list of most important new features in QueueExplorer 3.0:

  • Message body is visible at all times, so it’s much easier to check several messages in a queue – body will be automatically displayed as you click on message.
  • Subqueues are supported if QueueExplorer runs on OS which offers that functionality (Windows Vista or higher).
  • Messages can be quickly filtered by any field, or you can even create more complex queries.
  • Performance is improved in several areas. Now it’s realistic to open, select, save or load queues with tens of thousands of messages.
  • New file format is compressed and much smaller than before, and it doesn’t need lot of memory during save/load as prevoius file format did.
  • WCF messages viewer.
  • Color coded XML editor replaced previous read-only XML view.


QueueExplorer 2.2.4 – bugfixes and performance improvements

Changes in this release:

  • Faster loading of big files and reduced memory usage
  • Faster display of large XML message bodies
  • Command line option for turning off loading of public queues for performance reasons – /NoPublic
  • Bugfix: message body larger than 64KB was not correctly displayed/edited
  • Bugfix: messages containing byte 0 were not completely displayed in text view.
  • Bugfix: queue list didn’t show all queue properties correctly.
  • Bugfix: on some Vista machines QueueExplorer worked with reduced functionality

QueueExplorer 2.2.3 released

Changes in this release:

  • Queues are now closed immediately after each operation to prevent locking issues with other applications
  • Reduced MSMQ security requirements. QueueExplorer required full MSMQ permissions no matter which operation was performed. Now it will ask only for what’s needed, e.g. Peek to get list of messages, Receive to delete message, etc. Works only on .Net 2.0 or higher
  • Bugfix: More complex class hierarchies in .Net view crashed entire QueueExplorer.

QueueExplorer 2.1 – more responsive, better Bulk message sender, multi-queue operations

New version of QueueExplorer is released. Focus of this release is on improved responsiveness of user interface during long-running operations. Progress is displayed, either on progress window or on status bar. Most operations could be canceled.

Using QueueExplorer for stress testing is improved too. Bulk sender (previous Mass paste) takes all messages currently on clipboard and sends them to target queue as many times as you want. New feature is adjustable delay that could be added between messages during Bulk sending.

Last improvement is ability to delete or purge several queues at once. When queues are displayed in right pane list, multiple queues could be selected.

QueueExplorer 2.1 is free upgrade for registered users. You can download it from:
