I hope I'm in the right forum for SSCE?
I'm a student developing with VB and trying to incorporate a DataBase into my project.
I'm using a Lenovo ThinkPad T61, VISTA Business, and Visual Basic 2008 Express Edition.
There is a folder containing SSCE already on my machine. It's titled "Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition". I think it was loaded by some app like my wireless modem. I say this because when I uninstalled SSCE via Control Panel's "Add/Delete" (I didn't think it was needed) the wireless modem quit. I fixed this from a full back-up.
My question is, if I install SSCE with the download from MS (SSCERuntime-ENU-x86.msi), will the install overwrite the current copy (I think yes) and cause the apps that are using the current copy to stop working?
Also, is there a "Management Studio" version that works with Compact Edition?
