FIX: The merge replication agent stops responding when you perform merge replication between a SQL Server database and a SQL Server CE database, a SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition database, or a SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition database

Extended support for SQL Server 2005 ended on April 12, 2016

If you are still running SQL Server 2005, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2014 and Azure SQL Database to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure. Learn more about the options for upgrading from SQL Server 2005 to a supported version here.

Bug #: 363373 (SQL Server 8.0)

SYMPTOMS
When you perform merge replication between a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 database and a Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition version 2.0 (SQL Server CE) database, a SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition database, or a SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition database that is running on a handheld device such as a Pocket PC, the merge replication agent may stop responding in the following situations:
  • A custom conflict resolver program that uses the apartment threading model is used to perform the merge replication.
  • A conflict occurs between the SQL Server database and the SQL Server CE database, the SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition database, or the SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition database during the merge replication process.

How to install the hotfix if you are using Microsoft SQL Server CE, SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition, or SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition

If you are using Microsoft SQL Server CE, SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition, or SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition, follow these steps to install the hotfix:
  1. Install Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a (SP3a) on the computer that is running SQL Server.

    To download SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 3a, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
  2. Install the SQL Server CE server tools on the computer that is running IIS if SQL Server and IIS are running on different computers.

    To download the SQL Server CE server tools, visit the following Microsoft Web site:
  3. Stop the following services on the computer that is running SQL Server and IIS:
    • SQL Server
    • SQL Server Agent
    • IIS
  4. On the computer that is running SQL Server, back up the following files. By default, these files are available in the Installation Drive:\Microsoft SQL Server\Program files\80\COM folder:
    • Replrec.dll
    • Msgprox.dll
    • Replprov.dll
  5. If IIS is running on a different computer than SQL Server, back up the files that are mentioned in step 4 on the computer that is running IIS.
  6. On the computer that is running SQL Server, create a new folder and name it Extraction Drive:\Hotfix811188.
  7. Extract the hotfix that is mentioned in the Resolution section to the Hotfix811188 folder.
  8. Locate the following files in the Extraction Drive:\Hotfix811188 folder, and then copy the files to the Installation Drive:\Microsoft SQL Server\Program files\80\COM folder:
    • Replrec.dll
    • Msgprox.dll
    • Replprov.dll
  9. If IIS is running on a different computer than SQL Server, copy the files that are mentioned in step 8 to the Installation Drive:\Microsoft SQL Server\Program files\80\COM folder on the computer that is running IIS.
  10. Start SQL Server, the SQL Server Agent, and the IIS services on the computer that is running the respective service.
