On x64 system, the BOL steps will start the x64 Win Sync Manager not the 32bit version.  The x64 bit will not show Replication subscriptions.  In order to sync on a x64 system you must launch the 32bit Windows Sync Manager.  The steps below are modified for x64 systems.

To execute 32bit Windows Sync Manager.

  1. Open a cmd prompt or Windows Explorer
  2. CD to Windows\Syswow64
  3. execute mobsync.exe
