Getting "The specified module could not be found" error when compacting SQL CE database.

Hello,

I'm trying to programatically change a SQL CE Database's password. I found that the only way to do this is by compacting the DB, by calling the Compact() method while passing a new connection string with the new password.
This seems to be working fine when I test it using the Emulator, but I get a "The specified module could not be found" error when I test it on a physical PPC device. The error seems to happen when the Compact method is called.

Any ideas?

Thanks.

 Do you have the SQL Compact runtime installed, and, do you have the sqlcecompactxx.dll and sqlcesexx.dll in your device?

The SQL runtime is installed - if I comment out the Compact() method in my code, the app runs fine.
Where do I check for those 2 dlls?

Thanks.
