Replication Manager what re the required files and registry entries?

P: n/a
Can anyone tell me what are the files required for Replication manager
and registry entries required?

I think I read that there are 7 files and 3 registry entries but no
specifics.

I have Replication Manager installed on one server. It works fine.
The replication manager files are located in
c:\program files\common files\microsoft shared\database replication\

I have 23 files in that directory.

I need to install the software on another server and cannot locate the
original installation file.

Thanks.

It appears from this microsoft posting, that all I need is these 7 files:

Msremr40.dll
Msrpfs40.dll
Mstrai40.exe
Mstran40.exe
Rplman40.cnt
Rplman40.hlp
and replman.exe

Since it says nothing about any registry entries needing to be set, can
I asssssssuuuuuume that none are required?

No, but you can TEST that.
Indeed I would think none are required, excluding of course entries
created by registering ActiveX DLLs, if any, using regsvr32.exe.

You don't need replication manager.

All you need is the MSJet files and the transporter of your choice
(MSTRAN*.EXE or MSTRAI*.EXE).

I have posted instructions for how to do indirect replication
without replication manager (all on one line):

http://groups.google.com/group/micro...replication/ms
g/3b7167c1462b2d2f

Here is an article from another source that rather incompletely
explains the process in more detail:

http://www.vsj.co.uk/articles/display.asp?id=560

The key point: install the Jet 4 Replication Security update and it
basically takes care of the main replication files (including
installing the two synchronizer files cited above). Then all you
have to do is set up the appropriate registry keys, and running the
synchronizer of your choice once takes care of most of those for
you. Whether or not you choose to use the TSI Synchronizer is up to
you. I won't use JRO because I just don't see why I should, since it
lacks commands like MoveReplica. If you're going to have to use it
anyway for that, why use JRO, which is completely duplicated along
with additional features in the TSI Synchronizer?

No, you can't assume anything of the sort.

There has to be a registry key under Replication Manager for the
location of the synchronizer, and you need to set the dropbox,
managed replica(s) and log file location for the Transporter keys.
