Microsoft Sync Frameowork. provisioning not occuring RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am using Microsoft Sync Framework with Devart dot Connect assemblies to sync mysql PC(dev) and Cloud(production) databases, However, I am unable to get the Provisioning to work that usually occurs before actual synchronization. When I MessageBox the output before devProvision.Apply() it gives me message box alert but not when I do it after provisioning.This tells me that the provisioning is either not happening or taking too long. I wonder if its possible to debug provisioning itself.

    My Tables has only one row, so it shouldn't take too long to provision. I believe time of provisioning is more if you have more tables. I am coding in c#. Here is the code for my two files.I have made sure that there is table 'ptls' defined on PC and both database connection are working (ie. userid passowrd etc are correct).
