SQL Server Compact 4 replication library bug ?

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 28, 2010    Points: 0   Category :Sql Server
I get the subscriber connection string from a SqlCeReplication object like so: public string GetFullConnectionString(string connectionString) { using (SqlCeReplication repl = new SqlCeReplication()) { repl.SubscriberConnectionString = connectionString; return repl.SubscriberConnectionString; } } With a connection string of: "Data Source=C:\data\nw(40).sdf" I get this from 3.5.8081: ssce:default lock timeout="5000";data source="C:\Data\nw.sdf";ssce:max database size="256";ssce:max buffer size="4096";ssce:temp file max size="256";ssce:enlist="True";ssce:default lock escalation="100";ssce:autoshrink threshold="60";ssce:flush interval="10"; But I get this from 4.0 CTP 1: "Autoshrink Threshold=\"60\";Case Sensitive=\"False\";Data Source=\"C:\\data\\nw40.sdf\";Default Lock Escalation=\"100\";Default Lock Timeout=\"5000\";Encrypt Database=\"False\";Encryption Mode=\"\";Enlist=\"True\";Mode=\"Read Write\";Flush Interval=\"10\";Locale Identifier=\"-1\";Max Buffer Size=\"4096\";Max Database Size=\"256\";Password=\"\";Persist Security Info=\"False\";Temp File Max Size=\"256\";Temp File Directory=\"

Go Mobile: Create Compact, Robust Mobile Apps with SQL Server CE 2.0 and the .NET Compact Framework


Developers have myriad options when it comes to creating solutions for mobile devices. One of the greatest challenges facing mobile developers is finding a compact yet robust local storage solution. SQL Server CE 2.0 promises to deliver on both fronts. This new release represents a tremendous leap in terms of features and performance over its predecessor. This article will review some of the platform and tools choices developers have today. The authors will compare and contrast the significant new features in SQL Server CE 2.0 with the previous release. Following that, they will build a sample app for illustration.

Getting Started with SQL Server Compact 4.0 and ASP.NET 4

The article Getting Started with SQL Server Compact 4.0 and ASP.NET 4 was added by tmorton on Monday, August 09, 2010.

While professional developers are waiting for the Visual Studio Tools and Designers for SQL Server Compact 4.0, I will show how impatient developers can include SQL Server Compact with ASP.NET applications, and use it from ASP.NET pages. Previously, you

Using SQL Server 2008 R2 client with Enterprise Library



I am modifying an existing application that uses SQL Server 2008 as the database and Enterprise Library 4.1 for Data Access .

What I need to do is to make it use the SQL Server 2008 R2 client to take advantage of out of the box failover capabilities.

Any idea how I can accomplish this?


HOWTO add a C#.NET library to SQL Server as an assembly that uses such references as system.web.

HOWTO add a C#.NET library to SQL Server as an assembly that uses such references as system.web. I have a C# library (dll) I want to add to SQL Server via "CREATE ASSEMBLY", but the DLL uses these references: Microsoft.VisualBasic System System.Core System.Data System.Data.DataSetExtensions System.Drawing System.Management System.Web System.Web.Extensions System.Web.Mobile System.Web.Services System.Xml System.Xml.Linq And just to be clear, the DLL is a .NET 3.5 app, with the SQL Server being SQL Server 2008. Right off the bat, the "CREATE ASSEMBLY" call fails due to System.Web, which strangely, is The CREATE ASSEMBLE says this error: Msg 10301, Level 16, State 1, Line 1 Assembly 'MyLibrary' references assembly 'system.web, version=, culture=neutral, publickeytoken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a.', which is not present in the current database. SQL Server attempted to locate and automatically load the referenced assembly from the same location where referring assembly came from, but that operation has failed (reason: 2(The system cannot find the file specified.)). Please load the referenced assembly into the current database and retry your request. I have tried to use VS 2010, to create a SQL Server DB project, and it point blank does not let one add references to things like System.Web. When trying to use "Add Ref", VS 2010 literally lo

SQL Server 2005 Merge Replication

We did the following: We setup a database with all of standard tables, views, etc. We then put in place merge replication for a few of the tables within this database, including a tables called "Areas". We can execute SQL statements to insert rows into this table fine. We then applied an update script for this database to change a few tables by adding fields and changing indexes, etc.  We didn't change the "Areas" table though. After the update to the database structure, we get an error when trying to insert into this "Areas" table. The error message was the following: The insert failed. It conflicted with an identity range check constraint in database 'AETest', replicated table 'dbo.Areas', column 'AREPrimaryId'. If the identity column is automatically managed by replication, update the range as follows: for the Publisher, execute sp_adjustpublisheridentityrange; for the Subscriber, run the Distribution Agent or the Merge Agent.  The statement has been terminated.   What would cause such a problem and how do we resolve it?  The structure of the "Areas" table before and after the update is the following: USE   [AETest] GO /****** Object: Table [dbo].[Areas] Script Date: 08/24/2010 17:42:36 ******/ SET   ANSI_NULLS ON GO SET   QUOTED_IDENTIFIER ON GO SET   ANSI_PADDING ON

Sql Server 2008 R2 Replication

Dears, I am make a testing environment before implementing it into real world. I have 3 servers SQL 2008 R2, i configured 1 Publisher, 2 Subcribers with a merged replication. Everything is Ok. However, i have an ID field on Publisher which is autonumber(Start by 1, increment by 1). When I try to add new record on publisher, it takes it 1 by 1 i.e. 1-2-3.... But i try to add it on subscriber it starts with 20,000 i.e. 20001, 20002. I think this is logical for SQL, but can i define this number on the subscriber? So it will start on 200,000 for example? Another question, In LAN i can connect the subscriber to the publisher, it will connect to it directly, since it is broadcast. But in WAN environment how can the subscriber detects the publisher??? Your reply is highly appreciated, Thanks in advance,

Replication Wizard doesn't like SQL Server Alias

I tried creating a new replication but I get an error that says, "SQL Server replication requires the actual sever name to make the connection to the server. Connections through a server alias, IP address, or any other alternate name are not supported. Specifiy the actual server name, 'SomeMachineNumber'." I don't get this. Why can't I use an alias? I googled and found few articles but not sure if I understand what others are talking about. Here is how I have things set up and I'm hoping someone can explain to me what is happening. On my machine, I have the following alias set up. Alias Name: SQLDEV, Port No: 2433, Protocol: TCP/IP, Server: SomeMachineNumber In Mgmt Studio, I can connect to the server SomeMachineNumber by using the alias SQLDEV. However, if I try to create a new publication on SQLDEV, I get the above error. Now, just for the heck of it, I created another alias using the same properties as above except, I named the alias the same as the server, "SomeMachineNumber". I connect to the server in Mgmt Studio using the new alias, and now I am able to create the new publication. Does this make sense? Am I not still using an alias in the second example? Why does the replication seemingly like the alias "SomeMachineNumber", but not "SQLDEV"?

Creating a recordset using VBA in Excel with SQL Server Compact

I have create a SQL Server Compact database from VBA in Excel.  So far so good.  Now I want to access the database via a recordset.  here is my code.        Set recSet = New ADODB.Recordset        recSet.LockType = adLockBatchOptimistic     recSet.CursorType = adOpenKeyset     Call recSet.Open("SELECT * FROM SPAR", dbConn)   When I run this I get and error in Call recSet.Open("SELECT * FROM SPAR", dbConn):Errors Occurred, [,,,,]  I have search many forums about his problem, but I still can't see where the error is from.  I am using Excel 2003, and SQL Server Compact 3.5   Regards, Peter

ODBC Driver for SQL Server Compact Edition

I know that there is no ODBC driver available for SQL Server Compact Edition version 3.5.  Do you plan to add an ODBC driver in future release? If yes, is it high in your priority list?   The scenario why I am looking for an ODBC driver is to connect an MS Access application to a SDF file instead of MDB file.  This will enable me to easily sync the SDF file with SQL server repository using the new Data Sync Services.   Mario Cardinal MVP Solutions Architect

SQL Server Compact loses change tracking anchors when copied to device

I have a device app that use SQL Compact and uses sync framework to synchronize to a SQL Server 2008 instance.  In order to speed up the initial synchronization of my device app, I'm creating the database (.sdf) using the sync framework on the server based on the suggestion in this article: http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd938879.aspx#HandlingInitialSynchronizationandExpiredSubscriptions Then I get it via a WCF service down to the device app.  I'm able to download the db and it has data.  When I sync however, the database doesn't seem to think it is syncronized.  It seems to have lost it's anchors.   The following code returns an anchor for my State table on the server, but not after copying it to the device. Any suggestions are appreciated.  Thanks FPASQLCeClientSyncProvider).GetTableReceivedAnchor("State")

SQL Server Compact 3.5 Encryption Questions

If I create a database (.sdf file) on a server and set it to be encrypted, should it be able to be opened on a device or other PC?  In other words, is there anything in the encryption that is machine specific?  Or is it really that the password is what lets me connect and the encryption prevents it from being read by some other tool like a hex file viewer as one post suggested. I've read through lots of posts and documentation and I'm just trying to understand how encryption works and if there are any limitations or considerations and haven't found a good source. Thanks

Chunking to ntext / image columns in SQL Server Compact 3.5

Hi all! I'm trying to store (potentially) large files in a SDF, via a table with an image column.  Image columns hold up to 2GB. Every SQL CE example I've found which does this reads the whole file into a Byte array, then passes the array in a SqlCeParameter.   This is fine assuming that the file is small, or the code is run on a machine with plenty of memory.  But if, for example, you're trying to store a 1GB file on a PC with 512Mb, the whole file cannot be buffered in one go (without paging). What I want to be able to do is read and store "chunks" of a file into an image col.  E.g. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317034    I think this approach is both faster and more mem efficient.   It is possible on SQL Server 2008 etc., using either UPDATETEXT or UPDATE ... [column name].write( ..., ..., ...).   However, SQL CE doesn't appear to support either syntax. So, I guess my question boils down to: is it possible to store a 2Gb file in an SQL CE image column on a PC with 1GB of mem. (without spending ages paging) Thanks in advance, Ben.

SQL Server to SQL Server Compact Edition Database Copy

I recently switched from XP to Win 7 and am getting an error when using the SQL Server to SQL Server Compact Edition Database Copy wizard from johnnycantcode.com (link). I suspect that the problem is with the configuration of the path for the DQL CE dll. 1) Does anyone know where the configuration is set? It isn't in the GLT.SqlCopy.exe.config file in the local directory. 2) Has anyone got the program to run under Win 7? Thanks marc  

SQL server compact deployment help

I have a very simple windows desktop app I am trying to deploy using windows installer. I also have a SQL Server compact database file or (Local Database). When I deploy the app and try installing it on my test computer, I get an error saying the database was not found and then it displays the connection string that was set originally in Visual Studio. The application runs but all the database in not there. I don't understand why there is even a connection string there if the database in embedded in the application. Which is one of the benefits of SQL Server  Compact. What should change the connection string to?? Anyone have experience using SQl Server Compact for Win Forms?

Will SQL Server Compact feature an updated and more capable OLEDB driver

Hi, Earlier, we found problems with using SQL CE 3.5 via OLEDB. While some limited functionality was available and data can be accessed via commands and recordset via OLEDB/ADO from, say, Excel or Access, we were unable to access SQL CE directly from other data-driven packages that nominally support OLEDB, most importantly SAS and SPSS. So our question is whether SQL Server Compact will feature an updated and more capable OLEDB driver? Thx and regards, Ralph

Cannot add SQL Server 2008 R2 Report items to SharePoint Server 2010 document library

Using account which is the primary parent site administrator, can upload RDS and RDL files to the document library (however, cannot open report). User is also a domain admin with SA on the database instances. Cannot add Report Data Source with "New Document" icon.
