Hi All,

We are working on an app for Windows RT surface using HTML,Javascript/WinJS,CSS. For local database we are using SQLite3-WinRT plugin from https://github.com/doo/SQLite3-WinRT.

The SQLite database operations are working fine when we create db and its tables from the code,
but our requirement is to use an existing sqlite database and ship it with the application package(.appx) instead of creating db from code.

Could any one please let us know how to pre-populate an SQLite database file in a Windows 8.1 application?

Any code samples or tutorials would be really helpful.

 Thanks in advance.

the sqlite database is a single file. Just build it as necessary and include the file and you are done.

Thanks dlethe for valuable suggestion,

I got it solved by doing as follows:-
 
First i pasted my sqlite db in the project folder. Then in the db file properties set it to copy always.

Then for accessing the db file from JS/WinJS,  I have used the following code:-

var dbPath = Windows.ApplicationModel.Package.current.installedLocation.path + '\\mydb.db';

It worked! Now it is always copying my db file with application package and reading and updating data with the same sqlite db file.
