SQL CE 3.5SP1 not adding to a mobile device

Posted on 2009-02-23

I am trying to add a SQL CE 3.5 database to my windows mobile 6 project.  I have added the database through "add data sources" but I am getting the error: Can't find PInvoke DLL 'sqlceme35.dll' when I try and deploy it onto my device.  

It seems to have been a common problem, but I cannot see a set guide on how to fix it.

Any help would be great.  Let me know if you need any more information.

Cheers, Paul

Afraid that link was of no use.  But I have got it working.  Seems VS 2008 SP1 and SQL 3.5 SP1 are not compatible at the minute when using the emulator (unsure about a physical device).

Afraid the reply by ghemant is slightly different to mine, and therefore was unable to help.

But thanks to everyone who posted a reply.  Cheers for your help.
