I'm writing an app in visual but for some reason the compiler can't find.

Imports System.Data.SqlServerCe

Any ideas why?

    Are you using VS.Net 2002 or VS.Net 2003?  It's only available with .Net 1.1 (VS2003)

    You probably have to manually browse to find the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll assemblies.  Gotot Add Reference in the Solution, then browse to C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE and select the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll

    You'll get a message that the project needs to change the reference for System, System.Data, etc.  Say OK.  The assemblies in this folder are the ones you want to develop your CE app with, anyway.
