Asynchronously executing long-running tasks using ASP and MSMQ is what you
need :)

Hi all

Not sure if this is the correct list to post to.

I have a com object which imports a csv file and creates loads of records
in a back end database.

The full process is looking like it is going to take approx 40-50 minutes
to run.

I don't particularly want to run a webpage with such a long time out so
could anyone point me in any better direction.

I have read that MSMQ allows me to spawn a process which will run a com
object on the server as a background task. I can't find any samples of
this anywhere though.

ListMod: Are there any good titles on doing this within ASP/COM

Appreciate any pointers.
