I'm trying to set up snapshot replication on SQL Server 2008 32-bit but am receiving an error on the agent stating The system cannot find the file specified. The step failed..
The system is on Windows 2003 R2 and I've ensured all Windows updates have been applied. I have disabled publishing and distribution on the server and then re-installed it without any change.
I am using the default folder C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL10.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\repldata and set the permissions so that everyone has full control over it to ensure security is not the issue. I have also shared the folder and tried installing distribution using \\SERVER_NAME\repldata but again no difference.
Replication has never been set up on this machine previously.
