Using SQL server compact with Visual Studio 2019 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have sql 2019 community edition installed and developing a Visual Studio 2019 application for myself (health tracking) and would like to share it with other veterans without having them install sql server; is there documentation about deploying with SQL compact edition?

    I'm currently using Health Vault which is being unsupported by November.

  • SQL Compact is a simple .NET DLL and you "deploy" it by copying it together with your app; no additional Installation required.

  • I used SQL Server CE 4 with VS 2015 with a Freeware (C++) and I had nothing to install : I embedded the SQL CE DLLs (sqlceoledb40.dll, sqlceqp40.dll, ...) ...as resource and I extracted them in executable directory and it worked perfectly.
