Here is the setup:

SQL Server 2008 Enterprise Server with a Merge Publication.

SQL Server 2005 Express with pull subscription.

There is no web or ftp setup. This is direct merge replication.

Using the RMO objects from C#, I get a "class cannot be found." COM Error when accessing the MergePullSubscription.SynchronizationAgent property. I've tried with both the 2008 RMO dll's (version 10 dll's) and the 2005 RMO dll's (version 9 dll's).

When trying to use replmerge.exe, I get the following:
