  • Hi Scott,

    Thanks for posting in TechNet forum.

    The Mobile edition you mentioned is the one of SQL Server 2005, renamed to Compact Edition in SQL Server 2008 (R2). For both Mobile and Compact editions, Windows 7 Starter are supported as the OS platform. Refer to: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms172914.aspx

    But for SQL Server Express, they are not supported on Windows 7 Starter. Refer to: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms143506.aspx#SSE_x64

  • Hi Miya, I'm also trying to run sql 2008 compact on win 7 starter but to no avail. I installed both the compact and 2008 management studio. After installation, i'm unable to connect to the DB.
