Unattended install MSMQ

By Pickle ·
Windows 2000 professional workstation.
I am in the process of creating an image to push up to a RIS server via riprep.exe to then be deployed to many other machines. I want to know if there is a way to do an unattended install of Microsoft Message Queueing after the imaged computer has joined the domain and then rebooted. I would also like the MSMQ to be an independent client (not active directory integrated, private message queues). I have seen web pages stating you can do such a thing although they were for Windows NT. Anyone work with such a setup?

MSMQ requires active directory as it is considered an enterprise service. It will register its queues in Active Directory Sites and Services and if you read MS documentation they say you need to have elevated privileges to install MSMQ properly.
Side note: Why Windows 2000 pro? It has EOL'd and you won't get support for it. Why not XP?

So would it work to install it before using RIPrep.exe to push the image up to the RIS server? I
