Deploying SQL Server Compact Edition

In the interest of copy and paste and making your life easier, here are the 7 dll’s you need to locate and add to your project. You should be able to find them in C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\v3.5 (or v3.0). If you are using 3.0, substitute “30” for “35” in the names of these dll’s.

  • sqlceca35.dll
  • sqlcecompact35.dll
  • sqlceer35EN.dl
  • sqlceme35.dll
  • sqlceoledb35.dll
  • sqlceqp35.dll
  • sqlcese35.dll

Set the Build Action to “Content”, and “Copy to Output Directory” to “copy always” on these entries in Solution Explorer. On the reference to the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll in your project, set “Copy Local” to “true”.
