Sql Server Ce and Visual Studio 2003 Standard


G

Guest

I have Visual Studio 2003 Standard Edition and would like to develop PocketPC applications with Sql Server Ce using C#. My problem is that I need the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll library in order to make connections to the Sql Server Ce database's. How does one get these dll's without shelling out thousands for the Professional version of VS .net?

Thanks,
Jeff

VS.Net Professional is not "thousands", but just under a $1000.
You cannot develop/debug code for mobile devices using the standard edition.
Yes, it is possibly to compile the code using command-line compiler, but the
form designer and the debugger are part of VS.Net pro and up.
