FYI,

If you plan on distributing your apps with SQL as a prerequisite, you must enter into an agreement with microsoft.

Here is the link:

I believe you must enter into the agreement even if you do not plan on selling your app.

You're right.

To let everyone know, the compact edition can be used for desktop applications also.
