SQL CE 3.1 and 3.5

    I have a Vista and a Windows 7 64-bit box. I installed CE 3.1 and 3.5 on
    each box. I have an app that downloads, reads, and writes to sdf's
    downloaded from a Pocket PC. It was a VB.Net 2005 app that I imported
    into VB.Net 2008.

    I have literally 1000's of sdf in 3.1 format and want to be able to read
    and write to them from the 2008 version of the app.

    After much 'messing around' I finally got the Vista and Win 7 boxes to
    allow me to add the reference to 3.1 but I have to remove the 3.5
    reference.

    So now when I go to debug I now get an error message:

    Error while trying to run project: Unable to start debugging. The
    components for the 64-bit debugger are not registered. Please repair
    your Visual Studio Remote Debugger installation via 'Add or Remove'
    Programs' in Control Panel.

    I followed the repair recommendation to no avail. How do I get out of
    this mess so I can continue upgrading the software in VB.Net 2008?

    It seems that there should be a 64-bit version of 3.1 but I do not think
    it exists. Please help.

    Thanks

    I believe I ran into this before. The dll's for sqlce are not
    compatible with 64 bit OS's. Compile your application as x86 and it
    should work.

    Good Luck!

    Hi

    I have a working exe that was compiled for x86 os and will work on a
    64-bit. My problem is that I want to create a new release of the
    software with new enhancements. I want to do it in VB.Net 2008. Am I
    resigned to creating an upgrade utility for CE 3.1?

    Thanks
