I have a small SQL CE 3.6 *.SDF Database File which contains 3 tables.
I noticed there is an error on one of the tables. The primary key index starts at 1 but I need it to be 0. How can I change this without recreating the table?

I assume it's an identity column, otherwise a simple sql update statement would suffice.  Though, I must say, if it's a clustered index even the simple sql update would amount to a rebuild of the entire table.  So, I'm not sure why you are avoiding the re-create.  

I'm also a little confused by the notion of using identity (which implies no business meaning) and then insisting on a seed starting with 0 (which implies the opposite).  If you are feeling a need to control the values assigned to your PK, then perhaps idenitity is not such a good idea.
