Error description

  • A managed .NET client can not reference security exit in a path
    that contains parentheses.
    
    When specifying a security exit, the channel startup fails with
    error AMQ9535 as follows due to the parenthesis within the
    default path '(x86)':

    EXPLANATION:
    Channel program 'TEST' ended because user exit 'C:\Program
    Files (x86)\IBM\WebSphere MQ\exits\Test(Exit)' is not valid.
    Architecture of the exit library does not match the process's
    architecture which is '' bit.
    ACTION:
    Ensure that the user exit is specified correctly in the channel
    definition, and that the user exit program is correct and
    available.
