MK3100 ce7 and sql client

Greetings, I have been using MK3000 w/ CE5.0 .  We connect to a SQL database on a remote computer.  We use to install the sql client files on the unit, and it works great.  We are now using the 3100 w/CE7.0.  The won't install as it says it is not compatible with this version.  We are using .net 3.5.   Any help would be greatly appreciated on getting the sql client software to install on the ce7 device..  Thank you.
