We created a publication on SQL Server 2008 R2 (Dev. Edition). Then we tried to create a pull-merge subscription on the client which should create an entry in Synchronization Center (Win 7) as well under Windows Explorer –
Synchronization (Win XP).
This scenario works if there is only our instance of SQL Server installed on the client.
If there is another instance (default or another named instance) installed before we create our instance with subscription there is following strange situation:
Subscription is created properly within Management Studio, property for showing in sync center set to enabled.
No entries created in Synchronization Center or Win Explorer Synch.
