On This Page

Microsoft distributes Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP2 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 fixes as one downloadable file. Because the fixes are cumulative, each new release contains all the hotfixes and all the security updates that were included with the previous SQL Server 2008 SP2 or SQL Server 2008 R2 update release.

SYMPTOMS

Consider the following scenario:
  • You set up the following merge replication environment:
    • The publisher or the distributor uses Microsoft SQL Server 2008 or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2.
    • The subscriber uses Microsoft SQL Server 2005.
  • You configure the subscription to be a pull subscription.
  • You enable the use partition groups option on the article of the publication. For example, you use filters on the article.
  • You use the Microsoft Replication Interactive Conflict Resolver for merge replication. For example, you use Microsoft SQL Server Subscriber Always Wins Conflict Resolver.
  • You try to run the replication.

In this scenario, the replication fails, and you receive an error message that resembles the following:
<Conflict resolver name> is not registered correctly


CAUSE

This issue occurs because the publisher or the distributor returns an incorrect COM CLSID key to the subscriber.
