- I read somwhere that the CAB files needed for installing SQL Server CE on a WinCE OS can be obtained with SQL Server 2005. Does Express edition have those files

- I also read that same files are also distributed with VS2005. Since VS2005 is a development product, what are distribution for those CAB files when packaged with VS2005

- Additionally, there is SQL Server CE 1.7MB separate download but I found that the desired CAB files are not distributed with it. Does that mean that that edition is intended to mimic behavior of SQL server running on WinCE

Thanks,
Jaydutt

1: Express edition does not have the cab files.

2: Smart Device development option of VS 2005 Standard and higher installs the cab files.

3: You must download and install the SQL Compact SDK to get the device cab files, the download you are referring to installs only the desktop components. Download sdk form here: http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx familyid=E9AA3F8D-363D-49F3-AE89-64E1D149E09B&displaylang=en

Thanks for the link.

"3. You must download and install the SQL Compact SDK to get the device cab files."
I am developing application on a device for someone and they own the device. Is it okay for me to install SQL Server on the device and let them use it OR do I (or they) need to accept another license agreement I am asking this because it is an SDK, and the license could be intended solely for developing and testing applications.

Thanks,
Jaydutt
