Windows sync management is not picking up pull subscriptions with windows management sync property e

Posted By:      Posted Date: October 07, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server

Hi there,

I have a Sql server 2008 R2 Std and  sql server 2008 R2 Exp on clients.

on client workstations, there is a  pull subscription with  enabled "use  Windows synchronization manager" property.

The problem is  that windows sync manager always comes up with "There are no offline items to synchronize." and I'm wondering why is that it's not picking up the subscription.

Any idea would a great help

Security: Unify Windows Forms and ASP.NET Providers for Credentials Management


The .NET Framework 2.0 provides custom credentials management to ASP.NET apps out of the box. Using it, you can easily authenticate users without using Windows accounts. In this article the author presents a set of helper classes that let a Windows Forms application use the ASP.NET credentials management infrastructure as easily as if it were an ASP.NET application.

If you have an application that handles Windows Media content and you need an effective way to track content usage, Windows Media 9 Series now offers Digital Rights Management (DRM).

Windows Management Instrumentation: Create WMI Providers to Notify Applications of System Events


Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) is based on an industry-wide standard for notifications used to manage objects and devices across a network. By receiving WMI events, an application can be notified of changes to data in WMI itself. This allows the developer to notify the consuming application that certain system configuration data has changed, without the application having to poll WMI continuously for this data. The author presents an explanation of the different types of events in WMI, then goes on to develop an event provider.

Windows Management Instrumentation: Administering Windows and Applications across Your Enterprise


This article provides an overview of Windows Management Instrumentation, a technology that exposes a wide variety of system and device information through a standard API. With WMI, management information is exposed by following the object oriented structure outlined in the Common Information Model (CIM), which relies on inheritance for reuse and standardization of object classes that represent system devices. This article briefly describes querying WMI for information using a query language much like SQL called Windows Management Instrumentation Query Language (WQL), existing system classes, handling system events, and security in WMI.

How to implement Windows Computer Management using Windows API's

Hi to all! Please guide me since this is really something new to me, and I hope this is the right place to ask these questions.How do I implement Computer Management (Adding computer user to a Group) in C#?Here are the steps that I have done so far using Win API functions and structures:1. For getting the current user's info, I used NetWkstaUserGetInfo to get the current user's user name and log on domain (the structure used is WKSTA_USER_INFO_1) (Ex. user name acquired = user and domain = domain)2. Next is I have to identify whether the current user is a member of the Administrators group by first getting all the members of "Administrators" using NetLocalGroupGetMembers. (the structure used to store each member is LOCALGROUP_MEMBERS_INFO_3). Then looping through the members, I get the corresponding LOCALGROUP_MEMBERS_INFO_3. If the domainAndName member of LOCALGROUP_MEMBERS_INFO_3 is equivalent to the string combining the user name + backslash + domain from Step 1 (Ex. user\domain) then the current user is a member of the "Administrators" group.3. There is a part where I have to check if a certain user is a valid user, just like in Windows, when adding a user to a group. In Windows Computer Management, there is a "Check names" button and the location is identified above. (Example, domain.org). When I type in user1 i

Error Installing Sql Management Studio 2008 on 64 Bit Windows 7


I am getting the following message when I try to install SQL Management Studio on a 64 bit Windows 7 Premium Dell Laptop.  

The message is: Sqlserver 2008 Setup requires Microsoft .net Framework 3.5 SP1 to be installed.

I have downloaded the Service pack and attempted to install as Adminstrator  (Dotnetfx35setup.exe).   It comes up and asks if I want to run it, but nothing ever loads.     I don't know if a registry setting is conflicting with the installation or what.

This computer came with Vista Home Premium 64bit and we installed the upgrade to Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit (in case this has something to do with it.)   I have 2008 SQL Express running without problem along with Visual Studio 2008.

Any advice or suggestions to try would be appreciated.

SQL Server Management Stduio 10.0 (SSMS) Window Menu Listing Open Windows


In SSMS for 2008 the windows menu listing of open files is inconsistent.

When only windows that have previously been saved to a file are opened the Window menus lists as follows:
File Name - Connection (Username(spid)) - This is perfect since the file name is at the front and it's easy to identify a window

However, when an unsaved window is open (typically named SQLQueryX.sql) along with these saved windows the Window menu lists as follows:
File Name - Connection (Username(spid)) - Only for the first (active) window
C:\...\Connection (Username(spid)) - For remaining windows - this is annoying since we can't easily identify the windows by file name

On Day 4 of Trying To Install Sql Server Management Console 2008 on Windows 7

I had Sql Server 2005 installed and tried to get Sql Server Management Console Installed.  It looked like I needed to upgrade to Sql Server 2008 to do that, so I did.  Sql Server 2008 Sp2 actually. I had hoped it would come with the Management Console, but when it didn't I downloaded Management Console Express 2008, and tried to install it.  It said I needed to update my non-existent install of Visual Studio 2008.  I uninstalled it before installing Visual Studio 2010.  So, I found a program that would remove all traces of installed programs, ran it, rebooted, and tried again.  Still suggested I upgrade my non-existent Visual Studio 2008.  So, to make it happy I decided to install the minimal version of Visual Studio 2008, and then upgrade it.  It's not compatible with Windows 7.  Therefore, Management Console 2008 is incompatible with Windows 7.  Right?  Am I missing something?  I have searched the net for 4 days trying every suggestion, and every link posted to some version of management studio in hopes of finding something that would work, but so far, no luck.  I haven't even found anyone with the exact problem I have, which really worries me.

Data structure to automatically sync data between windows application and Microsoft SQL Server



I dont know whether I am posting this question in the right forum, please move it if needed. I have a windows application that shows data from a SQL table. I cannot use DataGridView in the application, I have a custom form to display the data. I need a datastructure to hold the table data and I display it using my custom windows form. Which data structure should I use to automatically sync data between windows application and SQL Server? I don't want to manually write Update queries. Any help would be appreciated.

SQL EXPRESS 2008 replication issue with sync media center on windows 7


Dear all,

I am not able to configure the system in order to make it solve merge conflicts interactively (that is with the help of the user).

The configuration is the following one:

PC-A: sql server 2008. With one the DB "myDB" published for replication.

PC-B: sql server 2008 r2 express. With two replicas of "myDB" on the same instance of sql express: "myDB1Replica" and "myDB2Replica"

The two replicas simulate two users that change the content of the same record so that I can test how the system behaves in case of conflicts.

Everything runs smoothly if "Resolve conflicts automatically" is set... but I get this error message when "Resolve conflicts interactively (only applies to articles that support interactive resolution)" is selected.

Error: The merge process failed to get correct information about the Interactive Resolver component from the registry. Verify that the registry exists and that the path is correct.

Of course this has been enabled on the article (from PC-A on sql server) and on the subscription (from both PC-B sql express and syncro center) as well.


I have been searching everywhere and found nothing! Any help would be really appreciated! I really need to run the interactive conflict resolution
