Error during replication which is not documented by Microsoft even : LUSENET : SQL Server Database Administration : One Thread

I have configured a transectional replication from SQL Server 7.0 running on NT Server to SQL Server 7.0 running on Windows 2000. Distributor and publisher enteries are finishing without any error but subscriber entry is ending with an error message "Could not get license information correctly". Please advice me what to do.

Here are some things you can try.

Make sure that you have applied the latest service packs.

Put your server in Per-Seat licensing mode. You can check this in the licensing applet in Control Panel.

Finally, check to see if the following registry key exists on the distributor:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/LicenseInfo/MSSQL 7.00

If it is not there you can back it up from another system with SQL Server 7.0 on it and restore it to this system.

Hope this helps,
