Installing SQL Server CE with Visual Studio .NET
Installing Microsoft® Visual Studio® .NET automatically configures the development environment for use with Microsoft SQL Server™ 2000 Windows® CE Edition (SQL Server CE). After installing Visual Studio .NET, you must still configure the computer running Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and the Windows CE-based device.
Note This feature has been designed to be used in conjunction with a prerelease version of an anticipated successor to Microsoft Visual Studio .NET. Check the documentation accompanying the commercially released version for any updates.
