    I have a desktop application created in VS2005 using SqlServer 3.1. I created
    a copy of that project and opened it on a different pc that has VS2008 and
    SqlServerCe 3.5 only. The sdf that the copy on VS2008 created was infact a
    3.5 database . I know this because I sent it to a Symbol MC55 device running
    a app thats expecting a 3.1 format and I got the SQLINVALIDDATABASEFORMAT

    Question: Can different versions of SSCE exist both on my coding pc and the
    matching dll's on the same device?

  2. SQL CE v3.1 and SQL CE v3.5 can be installed Side by Side (SxS).
