Referencing To System.Data.SqlServerCe Causes Large Files To Deploy To Emulator
Dec 8, 2006
This is my first time posting here, I hope this questions has not been asked before. I tried to search for it but I came not with nothing.
Recreating the error :
I am using VS2005. I created a Pocket PC 2003 project.
I have downloaded the SQL Server Compact Edition and installed it. I get the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll file from the installation directory.
I reference to that DLL using Add Reference in VS2005.
Build it. In the Bin folder, a long list of files suddenly appears.
and the rest of your original files in Bin
The worst of it all, all of these files are deployed into the Emulator! Causing it to run out of memory and unable to deploy.
Something is not right here, I just cannot figure it out! If this happens, each mobile devices can hold one applications. Thats not the way it should be, right?
If you have solved this before, do help. I am at my wits end at the moment.
We have a Compact Framework 1.1 application that uses Sql Server CE 2.0. In VS2003, a reference to System.Data.SqlServerCe causes the Sql Server CE dlls and Query Analyzer to install to the Emulator or PDA.
I am currently converting the application to Compact Framework 2.0, but we are not upgrading to Sql Server Mobile (yet). However, the reference to System.Data.SqlServerCe, in VS 2005, no longer causes Sql Server CE to install to the PDA/Emulator.
There is a difference in the build outputs between VS2003 & VS2005. In 2003, System_SR_enu.cab, sqlce.wce4.x86.cab & sqlce.dev.wce4.x86.cab are copied & lanuched. In 2005, only System_SR_enu.cab is copied... no launch.
I am trying to make a mobile application work, but I get the following error. The operating system on Pocket PC is Microsoft® Windows Mobile„¢ 2003 Second Edition. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
The followings are the error and my codes:
System.TypeLoadException was unhandled Message="Could not load type 'System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeDataAdapter' from assembly 'System.Data.SqlServerCe, Version=18.104.22.168, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845DCD8080CC91'."

I believe I've encountered a compatability problems with Visual Studion CF 2, specifically with the System.Data.SQLServerCE reference when trying to run (in debug mode - Pocket PC 2003 emulation). The environment is configured as follows:
Visual Studio 2005 - Compact Framework 2.0.50727
Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition
The (VB) project includes the following references:
System.Data.dll V2.0.000 from Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Smart DevicesSDKCompact Framework2.0V2.0WindowsCE
System.Data.SqlServerCE.dll V3.0.5214.0 from Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server Mobile EditionDeviceMobileV3.0
The IDE does not sense any problems with the following code until I try to run it in debug mode using the Pocket PC 2003 emulator. The code :
Public Class Form1
Private Sub Button1_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Button1.Click
MsgBox("Will Test SQL")
Private Sub testSQL()
Dim strConn As String = "Data Source = Test.sdf; Password = <password>"
In the debugger, the program terminates at Dim CEEngine As New SqlCeEngine(strConn). The message displayed is
Can't find PInvode DLL 'sqlceme30.dll'
I've tried referencing a different version of System.Data.SqlServerCE.dll (from Program FilesMicrosoft SQL Server90ToolsBinnVSShellCommon7IDE but the program will not even deploy to the emulator with this reference.
I encounter a Deployment/and or registration failed wit error : 0x8973190e - There is not enough space on the disk.
I've inherited a .NET CF 2.0 application at work that uses SQL CE, and as I'm digging into the build process, I'm getting confused about which version of SQL CE that is being used.
The project references System.Data.SqlServerCe (no hint path, just from wherever VS 2005 has it). When I look at the assembly in my project, the version shows up as 3.0.3600.0, but when I browse to the DLL's location on my hard drive (C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 8SmartDevicesSDK\SQL ServerMobilev3.0System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll), right click the DLL and check the properties, the version shows up as 3.0.3600.0.
In our installation package, we install three SQL CE Cabs: sqlce30.dev.ENU.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB sqlce30.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB sqlce30.repl.ppc.wce5.armv4i.CAB
When installed on the device, the Remove Programs dialog shows as "Microsoft SQL Mobile 2005..." is installed. We keep the cabs in a seperate location so they are not just pulled from anywhere on the hard drive.
However, when I install the same CAB files located at: C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft Visual Studio 8SmartDevicesSDKSQL ServerMobilev3.0wce500armv4i, the device shows "Microsoft SQL Mobile 2005 Compa...." is installed.
In my Add References dialog, System.Data.SqlServerCe has version 3.0.3600.0, runtime v2.0.50727
Some questions: 1. Is the version 3.0.3600.0 the same between 3.0 and 3.1? 2. Given a System.Data.SqlServerCe DLL, how can I tell if it is the 3.0 or 3.1 version? 3. When upgrading my project to use 3.1, is it enough simply to upgrade my build environment? Or should I need to change the references in my project? (It appears that the 3.1 DLLs have been placed into the default locations where VS 2005 is pulling them from). I'm using VS 2005 SP1 on Vista x64.
I am attempting to create a program that will run on the PocketPC 2003 environment. I have upgraded Visual Studio to SP1, I have installed SQL Server Compact Edition on my development machine and I have installed SQL Server Compact Edition Tools For Visual Studio on the development machine.
I have created a new project Visual Basic - Smart Device - Pocket PC 2003. I have created a form for user input. I build and deploy the form to the Symbol Pocket PC to test - no connection to data and it works.
I then add a reference to System.Data.SqlServerCE.dll and rebuild and redeploy the application to the handheld. When I attempt to open the form I receive the following error:
at System.Resources.ResourceReader.LoadObjectV2() at System.Resources.ResourceReader.LoadObject() at System.Resources.RuntimeResourceSet.GetObject() at System.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject() at System.Resources.ResourceManager.GetObject() at pmsPocket.frmSetSOPType.InitializeComponent() at psmPocket.frmSetSOPType..ctor() at System.Reflection.RuntimeContructorInfo.InternalInvoke() at System.Reflection.RuntimeContructorInfo.InternalInvoke() at System.Reflection.ContrcutorInfo.Invoke() at System.Activator.CreateInstance() at MyForms.Create__Instance__() at MyForms.get_frmSetSOPType() at psmPocket.SetSOPType.Main()
Now the confusing part is that I haven't changed any of the forms or the code behind the forms, I have simply added the reference to the project.
Any idea why adding the reference to System.Data.SqlServerCE.dll would cause the system to start generating these errors?
I've checked, the install process has loaded the .NET 2 framework to the handheld. And as indicated at the beginning of this message, the application showed the form prior to my adding the reference.
I'm using SQL Server Compact Edition, but in the future I would like to be able to switch to another SQL Server Edition or even a different database. To achieve this, Microsoft recommends using DB Provider Factories (see: Writing Provider Independent Code in ADO.NET, http://forums.microsoft.com/MSDN/ShowPost.aspx?PostID=674426&SiteID=1).I enumerated the available data providers on my PC with:
The important entry is:"SQL Server CE Data Provider"".NET Framework Data Provider for Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Mobile Edition""Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client""Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client.SqlCeClientFactory, Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client, Version=22.214.171.124, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91"When executing:
I got at first this error run time message: Failed to find or load the registered .Net Framework Data Provider.I added a reference to "Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client" at C:ProgrammeMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDEMicrosoft.SqlServerCe.Client.dll and the program runs.Of course, it uses "Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client" instead of "System.Data.SqlServerCe". Laxmi Narsimha Rao ORUGANTI from Microsoft writes in the post "SSev and Enterprise Library" that "Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client" is not meant to be used and that we should add the following entry to the machine.config file:
Code Snippet<add name="SQL Server Everywhere Edition Data Provider" invariant="System.Data.SqlServerCe" description=".NET Framework Data Provider for Microsoft SQL Server Everywhere Edition" type="System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeProviderFactory, System.Data.SqlServerCe, Version=126.96.36.199, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91" />
I get the same error message as before, even after adding a reference to "System.Data.SqlServerCe" at C:ProgrammeMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDESystem.Data.SqlServerCe.dll.Any suggestion what I should do ? Just use "Microsoft.SqlServerCe.Client" ? Anyway, I don€™t like the idea that I have to change the machine.config file, since I want to use click once deployment.
We are facing a problem with compact framework 1.0 and SQL CE on windows mobile 5.0 smart phone (Motorola Q).
The application was build for Windows Mobile 5.0. When we use €œSystem.Data.SQLServerCE.dll€? from €œC:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8SmartDevicesSDKSQL ServerMobilev3.0€? in compact framework 2.0 it works fine.
Since Motorola Q has .Net Compact Framework 1.0 we need to port same application to compact framework 1.0. There is similar DLL in "C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8SmartDevicesSDKSQL ServerMobilev2.0" but it is not working, it gives runtime error missing method at very first line of code SqlCeEngine _eng = new SqlCeEngine().
Why System.Data.SqlserverCe.Dll doesn't appear in VS2005. In VS2003 System.Data.SqlserverCe.Dll appear to write winCE application. But it won't appear in VS2005 while am selecting PocketPc application. any body gimme the solution.

I am trying to use SQL Mobile 2005 with Visual Studio 2005. I have a simple sql mobile db i created and am trying to test connectivity to the DB in a simple app. I added the reference to the SqlServerCE and the verison # that is shown in properties is 3.0.3600.0, but when i look at the physical DLL in explorer (found at C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8SmartDevicesSDKSQL ServerMobilev3.0) the version # is 3.0.5206.0, so when i compile and run the test, I get :
How can I tell if the System.Data.SqlServerCe assembly I am referencing is meant for Desktop use as opposed to Compact development? We are using NUnit as our testing framework and I get the following error when I attempt to execute nunit-console on my test fixture referencing SqlServerCe:

The unit tests run fine from inside of Visual Studio using the Resharper Unit Test Runner...
Hi, I am working on a .dll which need to access .sdf ( sql server mobile db). In my project, I added a reference "System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll". The dll is located in C:Program FilesMicrosoft Visual Studio 8Common7IDE. I am able to compile the project. Then I created a Unit project for this dll file. In Unit project, I added the same reference. Now the magic things happen. The compiling was failed. I got "Error 1 The type 'System.Data.Common.DbConnection' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced. You must add a reference to assembly 'System.Data, Version=184.108.40.206, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089'. C:VS2005MobileDBUnitMobileDBProjectUnitMobileDB.cs 50 13 UnitMobileDBProject".
I don't understand how come the same .dll could pass in a dll project but failed in unit test project. And I never saw the System.Data.SqlServerCe display in ".Net" Section of Add reference. But in my office, I installed same version of VS2005 for software tester. I could see the System.Data.SqlServerCe display in the ".Net" section of Add Reference.
We just upgraded our applications from VS 2005 to VS 2008 and discovered we had to convert our SQL Server CE databases. So I did that. I then included the sqlce...35.dlls in the application directory on my test computer as well as the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll version 3.5.
When I run the app and it tries to load the System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll I get the following error: System.IO.FileLoadException: Could not load file or assembly 'System.Data.SqlServerCe, Version 220.127.116.11...or one of its dependencies. The located assembly's manifest definition does not match the assembly reference.
We have the application targeting the .NET Framework 2.0 and need to keep it that way for awhile.
I came across a frustrating bug last week. Basically, whenever I tried to execute almost any sql query with unnamed parameters (i.e. using "?" instead of "@param_name" in the SQL text), an exception would be thrown.
After trying lots and lots of things and navigating my way through the internals of System.Data.SqlServerCe.dll, I discovered that the method System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.CreateParameterAccessor(...) has a bug.
The bug is that the private arrays "parameters" and "metadata" are ordered differently, yet at one point in CreateParameterAccessor(...) they are compared using the same index. Here are the two lines: p = this.parameters[ i ]; and MetaData info = metadata[ i ] and then the column data types of "info" & "p" are incorrectly compared in a later method, ValidateDataConversion(...).
So take a step back... how are they ordered differently? From observation, I concluded the following: The "parameters" array is ordered exactly in the order that the DbParameter's were added to the DbCommand object. The "metadata" array is ordered according to the column order of the table in the database.
So what causes the exception? Well, CreateParameterAccessor(...) passes data types from two different columns (one type taken from parameters[ i ] and the other from metadata[ i ]) on to SqlCeType.ValidateDataConversion(...). And, of course, if they differ (e.g. one column is of type DateTime and the other is a SmallInt), an exception is thrown. I've found two workarounds, and both seem to work well. The first is to name the SqlCeParameters (e.g. "SELECT ... WHERE id=@id"). This causes the buggy branch of code to be completely bypassed.
The second is to add the SqlCeParameters in the exact same order as the columns exist in the table you are accessing. Note, I do *not* mean the order that you select the columns (e.g. "SELECT column1, column2, ..."). I mean the actual order of the columns in the database.
I've included my setup and a stack trace below to help if it can.
My setup is: .Net CF 3.5 SqlServer CE 3.5 Visual Studio 2008 Deployed to Pocket PC 2003
Here is the stack trace (note the variables passed to ValidateDataConversion):
I have an app running Windows CE 5.0 and SqlServerCE 3.0. Occasionally, one of the production units will throw an exception with the following stack trace but no exception message:
Stack Trace: at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.ProcessResults() at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.CompileQueryPlan() at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.ExecuteCommand() at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.ExecuteReader() at System.Data.SqlServerCe.SqlCeCommand.ExecuteReader() at XX.MobileApp.frmXXX.LoadData()
This is not something that I have been able to reproduce in our shop. I even take their database and run it here in our shop with out such errors. Does anyone know some possible causes for this error?
Sorry, I don't have more info to give becuase this is all I have to work with since I cannot reproduce in our shop. If the exception object exposes a property for the HResult, I would be able to provide that.
hi...! I'm creating a small device application using visual studio.NET 2003. Is it possible to get a sql server ce database file (.sdf) that i created at the pocket pc emulator to my desktop pc ? If that's possible, then can you tell me how to do that ??
Throughout the course of this book and even before it I have come across conflicting information regarding how SQLCLR attempts to resolve system/CLR assembly references. For example, prior to my latest read thourgh April BOL 2005, I thought SQLCLR attempted to resolve these references implicity for you via the local machine's GAC. Yet here is what I found while trying to help another person in this forum yesterday in BOL... Assembly Validation SQL Server performs checks on the assembly binaries uploaded by the CREATE ASSEMBLY statement to guarantee the following:
The assembly binary is well formed with valid metadata and code segments, and the code segments have valid Microsoft Intermediate language (MSIL) instructions.
The set of system assemblies it references is one of the following supported assemblies in SQL Server: Microsoft.Visualbasic.dll, Mscorlib.dll, System.Data.dll, System.dll, System.Xml.dll, Microsoft.Visualc.dll, Custommarshallers.dll, System.Security.dll, System.Web.Services.dll, and System.Data.SqlXml.dll. Other system assemblies can be referenced, but they must be explicitly registered in the database.
For assemblies created by using SAFE or EXTERNAL ACCESS permission sets:
The assembly code should be type-safe. Type safety is established by running the common language runtime verifier against the assembly.
The assembly should not contain any static data members in its classes unless they are marked as read-only.
The classes in the assembly cannot contain finalizer methods.
The classes or methods of the assembly should be annotated only with allowed code attributes. For more information, see Custom Attributes for CLR Routines.
Besides the previous checks that are performed when CREATE ASSEMBLY executes, there are additional checks that are performed at execution time of the code in the assembly:
Calling certain Microsoft .NET Framework APIs that require a specific Code Access Permission may fail if the permission set of the assembly does not include that permission.
For SAFE and EXTERNAL_ACCESS assemblies, any attempt to call .NET Framework APIs that are annotated with certain HostProtectionAttributes will fail.
COULD SOMEONE PLEASE GIVE ME THE DEFENITE ANSWER ON HOW THIS WORKS!
I need to handle system messages being put on my queue.
I have 2 ways of doing this, by message_type_id or by name.
As BOL only mentions names of message types I assume the only gauranteed method is the "by name" option. or can I guarantee the values of message_type_ids, the reason I thought the latter was possible was that Remus included ids in his recent performance blog post.
I have created a windows library control that accesses a local sql database
I tried the following strings for connecting
Dim connectionString As String = "Data Source=localhostSQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=TimeSheet;Trusted_Connection = true"
Dim connectionString As String = "Data Source=localhostSQLEXPRESS;Initial Catalog=TimeSheet;Integrated Security=SSPI"
I am not running the webpage in a virtual directory but in
and I have a simple index.html that tries to read from an sql db but throws

The action that failed was: Demand The type of the first permission that failed was: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlClientPermission The Zone of the assembly that failed was: Trusted
I looked into the .net config utility but it says unrestricted and I tried adding it to the trusted internet zones in ie options security
I think that a windows form connecting to a sql database running in a webpage should be simple
I have a problam. I wanna deploy my application that it has data.mdf file.
When I install and test it I get this message:

I have deployed to production a number of nested packages (parent packages that call child packages) to the SQL msdb via the Save As option rather than building a deployment utility. These packages reference configuration files in a static location off of the c: drive on the production server. In the development environment, when connection changes are made and I run the Reload with Upgrade option the connection manager takes on the new server and user id settings. However, out on the production side I get the following error from the SQL job log:
Cannot load the XML configuration file. The XML configuration file may be malformed or not valid.
As a result the SQL job uses the default connection information which references the development database rather than the production database. I did research the error but found no good solutions. Is there a way to ensure the configuration files are formed correctly and that the packages are correctly referencing the configuration files? We are trying to run the ETL updates via a SQL job.
I'm getting ready to deploy my SSIS packages to a real server (woohoo) after testing on my local SQL box. What files have to be deployed to the SQL server? I'm creating a folder for each package (easier for these guys to maintain when my contract is up). Does only the .dtsx and .dtsConfig file go or is there any other files that have to be copied over to the SQL server?
