Installing SQL Server Compact 3.5 on Windows CE 7.0 devices

Version 3

    Zebra mobile devices running Windows Embedded Compact 7 (CE7) come installed de-facto with .NET CF v3.5 Build 12128 & SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 Build 8154.

    This is the case for MC3200 with BSP v61.51.18 (2015-07).

    If for any reason you want to use the SQL Server Compact version shipped with VS2008, you will see that the related CAB files will not installed on the device with the traditional command WCELOAD.

    This is because the genuine CAB files have property OS Max Version = 6.00. And the device is running Windows CE 7.


    SQL Server Compact files attached with this message have their property OS Max Version = 99.

    Their content have not been changed.


    By using these CAB files, installation should not be anymore a problem on device running CE 7.
