Would you recommend this ExportSQLCE as a good tool so that we can write command line scripts?

The data on the device (SQL CE) and the desktop (SQL Server 2008 Express) will be changing daily so we'll probably have to write a synch program.

I see that codeplex also has a SQL Compact Command Line Tool.

Have you used either of these products?

No, I have used the other way. SQL 2k8 -> CE. I use old fashioned Web services and WCF to sync data from my WM device to my SQL server,
