the merge process could not initialize the subscription

SQL Server 2000 -> Merge repl. to a remote SQL Server 2000.

I get this error no matter if it's a push or pull subscription:

"the merge process could not initialize the subscription.  the step failed."

I even tried creating the snapshots on the remote computer.

I also put in a new REPLPROV.DLL and registered it with no success either.

I ended up deleting my subscriber DB's and reconfiguring Replication from scratch.  That got it going properly.  Thanks.
