I am playing around with VS 2008 C# Express and .NET 3.5 and SQL Server Compact.  I can't find a reference to the above?  Anybody know where it is?

I saw that... system.data.sqlserverce.dll doesn't exist (and I've downloaded everything I could find)...

I haven't seen that in the VC# express edition, I have the Visual Studio Professional Edition Beta 2, and in the installer there is a separated option to  install Sql CE database support

Hmmm... now I'm wondering if it's even supported under VS Express 2008...

as a general rule, C# EE doesn't support Mobile development, so I wouldn't expect to find SqlServerCE there.

Sorry, Ghost... that's old stuff... I was able to create a new compact database, so I know it's supported under VS Express 2008... I guess I'm breaking new ground here, so I'll just keep plodding along, and will post the results here for others.

Thanks to both of you for your suggestions...

>> I was able to create a new compact database
How? from a VS Express project? or you have installed the engine separately?

According to this, it should be included, at least:

"Visual Basic & Visual C# 2008 Express SKU will include SQL Server Compact 3.5 as part of their default experience."

Well... here's the definitive answer:

Visual Studio Standard, Pro, Enterprise or above required - Visual Studio Express SKUs will not work with SQL Server Compact Tools...

But, the good news is that I was able to reinstall VS 2008 and lo and behold the necessary connections, etc were there...

Thanks for the suggestions...

Yes, it does, but not with the tools... I have been able to create a compact database and tables with ease (no code), and the using statements are there also to support the code.

Sorry, Jaime...

Just I am curious about this:
>>Where is System.Data.SqlServerCe?
>>I am playing around with VS 2008 C# Express and .NET 3.5 and SQL Server Compact.  I can't find a reference to the above?  Anybody know where it is?

Are you able to use the namespace and include the dll into your project with Visual C# EE 2008 ?

Yep... but don't need the .dll... apparently it's automatically included in 2008... and you can even create the database and tables with a rudimentary tool...
