 this assembly is part of SQL Server Compact Edition and not part of Microsoft .net Framework. In order to see it in Object Browser, we have to add it manually. Please see the steps below:

1.       In Visual Studio, please press CTRL+J to display Object Browser

2.       From the dropdown list, please choose “Edit Custom Component Set…”

3.       In Edit Custom Component Set window, please switch to Browse tab

4.       Locate to the location of this assembly
 we could found it in the following folder:
 c:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\v3.5\Desktop\System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll
 c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\v3.5\Desktop\System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll

5.       Double click it to select it

6.       Click OK
