Anywhere to find the following KB? KB 2703853 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sync Framework has a bug in it and supposedly this KB fixes the issue. I cannot find an official download of this KB anywhere.  Does anyone know if there is a repository of older KBs? I have found copies from random people, but in this case we need to try to get it from a verified source.

    64 bit patch is needed.

    The web page discussing this has a link to the hot fix, but it then says "hotfix is no longer available".

    Symptoms


    When you use Microsoft Sync Framework 2.1 to perform data synchronization, you may receive the following error message:
    System.OverflowException: Value was either too large or too small for a UInt64. At System.Int64.
    Additionally, when you run the following code against the problematic database to check the @@dbts value, you will find that the value is greater than the limitation of an Integer data type value (2147483647):
    select @@dbts
    Note @@DBTS returns the last-used time stamp value of the database.


           

    Cause


           
    This issue occurs because Sync Framework performs some calculations on @@dbts after converting the @@dbts value to the Integer data type value. However, when the @dbts value is greater than 2147483647, the value is converted to a negative integer value. Therefore, an OverflowException exception occurs in the later calculations.

    can you please reupload the hotfix.
