SQL Compact Edition 3.5 and Visual Studio 2005, CE 2003 se, Windows Mobil 5.0

Posted By:      Posted Date: April 10, 2011    Points: 0   Category :



my big question is :

Is it possible to use SQL Compact Edition 3.5 with Visual Studio 2005 ?


We have one big .Net CF application which need to run on CE 2003 SE and Windows Mobil 5.0. It would be great if we only need one Package (CAB) for both types of devices.

Any hacks to get SQL Compact Edition 3.5 working with Visual Studio 2005 are welcome.

Windows CE: Develop Handheld Apps for the .NET Compact Framework with Visual Studio .NET


Smart Device Extensions (SDE) for Visual Studio .NET allow programmers to develop applications for the .NET Compact Framework, a new platform that maintains many of the features of the .NET Framework in a version optimized for handheld devices. This article shows how SDE provides access through Visual Studio .NET to a variety of .NET classes for devices running Windows CE, including classes for creating user interfaces. Data access classes and Web Services for the .NET Compact Framework are also explained. Following that overview, a sample Web Service called XMLList is built. Then the UI-the XMLList client-side application-is created.

Accessing code in InfoPath 2003 forms from Visual Studio 2005

Can vbscript code contained in an InfoPath 2003 form be accessed from VS2005 on a machine running Office 2010? We are testing Office 2010 our our PC's and the custom task pane code that works just fine on PC's running Office/InfoPath 2007 does not run on the test PC's. I've been reading that the vbscript code in the form can't be edited directly when opening the form in InfoPath 2010, but that's not what I'm trying to do. I want to access the vbscript code through the .Extension property of the XDocument object from client side javascript code on an .aspx page like we have done for years. The existing code, which runs perfectly on PC's with Office/InfoPath 2007,  looks like this ... var xDoc = window.external.Window.XDocument; xDoc.Extension.UserLookupDone (userid); When run on PC's with Office/InfoPath 2010 the code throws error "Class doesn't support Automation". Are we trying something that is no longer possible? Any help is appreciated.

Use Visual SourceSafe 2005 via COM interface on Windows 2003 Server 64-bit



I'm trying to use Microsoft SourceSafe 2005 COM (published via ssapi.dll) in my 64-bit application running on Windows 2003 Server 64-bit. The attempt to get instance of the interface fails with "Class not registered" (REGDB_E_CLASSNOTREG) error. As many posts in other forums and MSDN documentation explain it is happening because of separation between 64-bit and 32-bit implementations. In other words the process in 64-bit doesn't see registry entries made for 32-bit applications. (I checked and see the registry entry under $/HKLM/SOFTWARE/Classes/Wow6432Nodes/CLSID/{Class ID}). However, I need my app. to use SourceSafe services.

Please, advise how I can invoke COM interface implemented in 32-bit from my 64-bit application. Since the 32-bit application isn't mine I can't recompile it with 64-bit... :(


Thank you.

Compatibility of Visual Studio 2005 with Windows 7

SQL/CLR Debugging hangs on Visual Studio 2003 and SQL 2005


I am unable to debug code from a SQL Database Project using the CLR.  After VS 2005 does the auto-attaching to the SQL server, VS hangs until I tell it to stop debugging.  Many others have reported this as a similar problem, however this only seems to affect me when I'm connecting to specific servers.  Specifically it seems to be remote connections.  When I attempt to connect to my SQL 2005 Developer Edition "locally" I get right through and can debug.

From my VS output window:


Auto-attach to process '[1688] [SQL] gx620-eric' on machine 'gx620-eric' succeeded.

Debugging script from project script file.



No rows affected.

(0 row(s) returned)

Finished running sp_executesql.

When I attempt to connect to a remote server running Enterprise Edition, it hangs after a successful attach. 




installing SQL Server 2005 on Windows 7 with Visual Studio 2010 already installed



Last year I had Vista on machine with Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 running fine. Last week I decided to wipe the hard disk, install Windows 7 and make the move to Visual Studio 2010. I still need SQL Server 2005 to be able to test code for clients using this.

Anyway, Visual Studio 2010 Professional went on OK. This installed SQL Server 2008 Epxress.

I then try to install SQL Server 2005. I know that there is a compatibility problem, so following advice from other sources, I want to install it without running the server, then install SQL Server 2005 SP3. Then I should be up and running.


The problem is that even though I make sure the 'Start SQL Server' check box is UNchecked, part way through the installation it throws up an error saying it can't start the server and this part of the installation is unrolled.

I've tried running 'setup.exe SKUUPGRAGE=1' which gets rid of the only warning I was getting up to this point, but the setup seems to insist on running the server even though I tell it not to. So I don't get a chance to run SP3 on it.


I wonder if the problem is that SQL Server 2008 Epxress is already installed but can't see an easy way of uninstalling it. It doesn't appear as an uninstall option using the Visual Studio 2010 disk and if I look at uninstall programs I get the f

Compatibility issues between Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 and Windows Server 2008 R2


Dear sirs,

When I was installing SQL Server 2005 64 bit on Windows Server 2008 R2, I received a notice informing the software Microsoft Visual Studio 2005 has known compatibility issues with this version of Windows.

So how can I get around these problems?

I need to use Visual Studio 2005 to create the Integration Services packages.

Also, I need to migrate directories of Integration Services packages from a server with SQL Server 2005 32 bit on Windows Server 2003 32 bit for a server with SQL Server 2005 64 bit on Windows Server 2008 R2. How can I proceed to do this?

Thanks in advance.

Utilizing SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (ENU) on a Windows 7 (64-bit) Platform


Dear MSDN experts,

Windows Update has automatically installed SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition (ENU) along with numerous Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable downloads, an 2005 ATL Update, and Framework.NET 4.0. I am a computer novice but because of these updates, I am interested in applying Microsoft developer tools. I would like to know the best approach to utilize these installs and am trying to ask appropriate questions to the most relevelant forms.

I have searched the Learn Category in MSDN and the closest approach I have found is to obtain what I believe are the necessary packages to apply SQL Server namely, the 2008 Management Studio (what is the best version and download source?), Visual Studio (what is the best version and download source?), and/or SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition Online Books (can I read them online or do I have to download them?). Are these packages available to me and are they free?

Will the utilization of this server allow me access to external databases for import to Microsoft Access and Excel? So far I am puzzled as how to sign in on any server source.

Thank you for the time and effort for this humble student to get initiated in MSDN Development. fcZZ.

Visual Studio closes itself by opening aspx-Page designer after Windows Update


Hey Guys,

I've a problem with my Visual Studio.

On the 13th of August 2010 i installed a Windows update on my vista sp2 pc. For this date my Visual Studio 2008 sp 1 always has closed itself by opening an aspx-page in designer view. There is no error message just closing the window. I restored a backup of my windows from the time before updating it and it helped, i could open aspx pages in the design view till the update has been installed again automatically after rebooting the pc. I can't disable windows updates, cause it's my pc at work and safety is very important. I hope you could help me out of this disaster.
