    Unanswered: Replication problem - system cannot find the specified path

    Hi,

    I'm trying to set up transactional replication from one server to another (I've done this successfully a few times). I've set up the publications and pushed a subscription to the subscriber. But as soon as the snapshot agent starts, I get the following error

    system cannot find the specified path

    The path for the snapshot is valid, and I'm using a domain account which has acces to this folder to run the SQL Server Agent on both boxes.

    Could anyone tell me where I'm going wrong?

    Ian

    Fixed it!

    For some reason, the path for certain executables used in replication is stored in the regisry in DOS format, so SQL Server was looking in microso~2 instead of microso~4. I changed this in the registry and everything was fine!
