Setting up merge replication SQL 2005 - SQL CE

I am trying to setup Merge Replication between SQL 2005 and SQL CE using the new subscription wizard, I have the publications and virtual directories setup and keep getting the error:

New Subscription Wizard
- Beginning Synchronization (Success)
- Synchronizing Data (Error)
A request to send data to the computer running IIS has failed. For more information, see HRESULT.
HRESULT 0x80072EE2 (28037)
 The operation could not be completed.

Everywhere I look the advice is to ensure the permission on the snapshot and virtual directory are correct, however I have enabled Everyone to have full control of those directories and shares, so that should not be an issue.  I have even installed IIS on the test SQL server and used the virtual directory on that machine with the same result.  There is nothing in the event log and I had no errors setting up the publications and virtual directories.  Browsing to the virtual directory in IE gives me: SQL Server Mobile Server Agent 3.0

    Just a thought,
    Right click the virtual directory in IIS, click properties, click directory security, click edit.
    In the Authenticated Access box, make sure Integrated Windows Authentication is checked.

    permissions looked fine in windows for everything, i did a check of the sql dll by adding ?diag to the query string and found the wizard had setup permissions incorrectly somehow so it did not have read/write permissions, i reran the wizard on the server instead of the dev machine and it works.
