i'm setting up a merge replication between sql server 2000 developer ed with sql server ce 2.0. By the way, i need to create a virtual directory folder. i set up the web server through SQL Server CE virtual directory creation wizard. When i finish create the virtual dir folder, the SQL Server CE node will show my virtual dir name eg: mergeABC. however, once i close the window and re-open SQL Server Connectivity Management, the folder that i created is lost. What's wrong with my virtual directory??!!!!! HELP~~~ thanks!!
