Can you provide more details about u r issue like

  1. the type of service you are trying to import
  2. the exception traces on the catalog service.

1 It is a WCF service

2 How to find exception traces? can you please help.

Actually the wizard itself is not loading... the type of service won't affect it?

Hi ,

can you check if the catalog service is running?

windows->run>services.msc->MSE Catalog Server is running.


Another way to check the logs is in Windows-> Run->eventvwr

in EventViewer -->Application & service logs-> Microsoft MSE Calatlog.

This gives u errors.

Issue resolved. Thanks to Makuma. Issue was with the local useraccount running the service as it din't had access to databse on remote machine.
