not receiving live events from catchup subscription on embedded event store?

Good day all. I can’t seem to get the catchup subscription with embedded event store to work properly. Grabbed the latest embedded event store from nuget this morning.

Here’s a basic reproduction… should be seeing " Live Event Appeared" every 1 second in the console. I see the Non-Live events and the Live message, but after Live… nothing…

namespace esbug1


using EventStore.ClientAPI;

using EventStore.ClientAPI.Embedded;

using EventStore.Core;

using EventStore.Core.Bus;

using EventStore.Core.Messages;

using System;

using System.Net;

using System.Threading;

class Program


    static void Main(string[] args)


        bool islive = false;

        var path = @"C:\Users\cray\Desktop\db\";

        var node = StartEmbeddedEventStore(path);

        var conn = EmbeddedEventStoreConnection.Create(node, ConnectionSettings.Create().LimitRetriesForOperationTo(3));

        var sub = conn.SubscribeToAllFrom(Position.Start, false,

                    (s, ev) => Console.WriteLine(islive ? $"Live" : "Non-Live" + " Event Appeared"),

                    (s) => { islive = true; Console.WriteLine("Live!!"); },

                    (s, e, ex) => Console.WriteLine("Subscription Dropped."),

                    new EventStore.ClientAPI.SystemData.UserCredentials("admin", "changeit"));

        while (true)


            Write("foo", "FooEvent", "{bla:1}", conn);




    static ClusterVNode StartEmbeddedEventStore(string path)


        var embeddedEventStore = EmbeddedVNodeBuilder.AsSingleNode()



            .WithExternalTcpOn(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Loopback, 1234))

            .WithInternalTcpOn(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.None, 1234))

            .WithInternalHttpOn(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.None, 1234))

            .WithExternalHttpOn(new IPEndPoint(IPAddress.Loopback, 1234))


        var startedEvent = new ManualResetEventSlim(false);

        embeddedEventStore.MainBus.Subscribe(new AdHocHandler<UserManagementMessage.UserManagementServiceInitialized>(m => startedEvent.Set()));


        if (!startedEvent.Wait(60000))

            throw new TimeoutException("Embedded Event Store has not started in 60 seconds.");

        return embeddedEventStore;


    static void Write(string streamName, string eventType, string text, IEventStoreConnection conn) =>

        conn.AppendToStreamAsync(streamName, ExpectedVersion.Any, new EventData(Guid.NewGuid(), eventType, true, System.Text.Encoding.UTF8.GetBytes(text), null)).Wait();




There is a recent change here try master

Master works like a charm. Thanks.
