how to make sqlce 3.5 work on Win compact 7?


Audience

I make an application with Visual C# for the Mk3000 with Windows CE 5.0, the aplication use a small database on SQL CE 3.5 , that holds some data when the device lost conection with the local network. The issue is that my company is updating some Mk3000 to Mk3100 with Windows Embedded Compact 7, I modify my aplication to work with this OS, but the problem are the installation CAB files for the SQL CE : 
 
- sqlce.dev.ENU.wce5.armv4i.cab
- sqlce.wce5.armv4i.cab
- sqlce.repl.wce5.armv4i.cab
 
All of them are not installed correctly, it shows a window with the next message "The program is not compatible with the current operating system..."  message.

My question is: there is a way to make this cab files work, and  if not what is the option?, Im trying to find info about this issue on the msdn and stackoverflow, but I haven't find anything,
 
Thanks in advance.

Try this:
Change the INF file in the cab-file.
Set the parameter "MAX OS = 6.99" to a higher value.
