Get Error 8000FFFF by running ExecuteReader() on Microsoft Device Emulator
Posted on 2009-05-07
I need some help to solve the following problem.
Error 8000FFFF - Catastrophic failure
I had an application which one is deployed for .NET 1.1 CF and SqlCe 2.0.
The application runs since several years without any problems.
Now i have tried to Setup this application on a MS Device Emulator Version 1 Standalone Edition with OS Windows Mobile 5 for Presentation and stuff like that. If i run this app on the Emulator it throws from time to time the Error 8000FFFF at this call:
SqlCeDataReader mySqlDataReader = mySqlCommand.ExecuteReader();
It's doesn't matter what kind of sql-statement will be execute, the error throws anyway.
I have also updated the MS Device Emulator from Version 1 to 3. It's still the same.
I guess it could be a SqlCe conection problem on the Device Emulator - Timeout or stuff like that.
The connection will be init that way:
SqlCeConnection sqlConn = new SqlCeConnection(@"Data Source=" + databaseFile);
Any help will be much appreciated
