VS2008-VB.NET: SQL Compact Edition 3.5 is not supported??

During the development VS stopped allowing a connection to a CE 3.5 for viewing the DB in the Data Source pane. For months DBs were removed and new replaced with new CE with no problems.

The connection string is correct and CE works correctly, but .NET will not allow it to display in the Data Source panel. I can run queries from the client, but I cannot view the database for debugging queries and client code.

Anyone know what may be causing this quirky behavior? Thanks for any help.

There has been service packs for both Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server Compact.

If your versions of VS2008 and SSC do not match, it is possible that Visual Studio does not recognize the server.
