I am trying to create a Merge Replication using RMO Programming which i got from here

string publisherName = "DataSourceName";
        string publicationName = "AdvWorksSalesOrdersMerge";
        string publicationDbName = "AdventureWorksDW2008R2";
        ReplicationDatabase publicationDb;
        MergePublication publication;
        // Create a connection to the Publisher.
        ServerConnection conn = new ServerConnection(publisherName);
             //Connect to the Publisher.
            // Enable the database for merge publication.               
            publicationDb = new ReplicationDatabase(publicationDbName, conn);
            if (publicationDb.LoadProperties())
                if (!publicationDb.EnabledMergePublishing)
                    publicationDb.EnabledMergePublishing = true;
               //  Do something here if the database does not exist. 
                throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
                    "The {0} database does not exist on {1}.",
                    publicationDb, publisherName));
            // Set the required properties for the merge publication.
            publication = new MergePublication();
            publication.ConnectionContext = conn;
            publication.Name = publicationName;
            publication.DatabaseName = publicationDbName;
            // Enable precomputed partitions.
            publication.PartitionGroupsOption = PartitionGroupsOption.True;
             //Specify the Windows account under which the Snapshot Agent job runs.
            // This account will be used for the local connection to the 
            // Distributor and all agent connections that use Windows Authentication.
              publication.SnapshotGenerationAgentProcessSecurity.Login = userid;
               publication.SnapshotGenerationAgentProcessSecurity.Password = password;
             //Explicitly set the security mode for the Publisher connection
            // Windows Authentication (the default).
            publication.SnapshotGenerationAgentPublisherSecurity.WindowsAuthentication = true;
             //Enable Subscribers to request snapshot generation and filtering.
            publication.Attributes |= PublicationAttributes.AllowSubscriberInitiatedSnapshot;
            publication.Attributes |= PublicationAttributes.DynamicFilters;
            // Enable pull and push subscriptions.
            publication.Attributes |= PublicationAttributes.AllowPull;
            publication.Attributes |= PublicationAttributes.AllowPush;
            if (!publication.IsExistingObject)
                 //Create the merge publication.
                // Create a Snapshot Agent job for the publication.
                throw new ApplicationException(String.Format(
                    "The {0} publication already exists.", publicationName));
        catch (Exception ex)
             //Implement custom application error handling here.
            throw new Exception(String.Format("The publication {0} could not be created.", publicationName), ex);

publicationDb.EnabledTransPublishing = true;

Did you specify the correct userid-password for the connection? Security privilege in place?

Have a look at this MSDN support thread[^], not exactly same but hints on system-administrator account in place and active.

Yes all credentials are correct and Connection is also established but at the next line i.e. (publicationDb.EnabledTransPublishing = true;) i m getting error.

The control not even going this line also

publication.SnapshotGenerationAgentProcessSecurity.Login = userid;
publication.SnapshotGenerationAgentProcessSecurity.Password = password;

thnx for your replay..
