Well, I've looked and can't *quite* find the right answer, so I'll ask it here.
I have a ASP.Net MVC 2 app, using the cool new SQL Compact 4 & EF CTP. Works great.
I tried to deploy it using VS2010 publish to Softsys hosting (chosen from the "learn more" link in VS2010).
I have the db, all the Sql.Data.SqlServerCe*.dll, and hte System.Data.DataSetExtensions.dll, and followed Erik's 3.5 deployment from his blog post (http://erikej.blogspot.com/2010/07/getting-started-with-sql-server-compact.html).
The error is
Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed.
Obviously, I can't run the sql install here.
