well, i have installed it on the exchange server.

i did all the settings in exmerge as described (one-step-procedure), i added the closest DC/GC and the LDAP port, using the last mailbox locale;but as soon as i try to run exmerge,in the end that error message shows up. i even tried another Dc,but no chance.

i dont really think i did something wrong.
Are you logging into the server with the account you used to install Exchange with?  If so there are inherit Deny permissions in place for the Send As and Receive As rights, both of which are needed to run Exmerge.
