Deploying a Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2000 Windows® CE Edition (SQL Server CE) application can require installing parts of the application on one or more of the following systems:
- Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) systems
- Microsoft ActiveSync® systems
- Microsoft Windows CE-based devices
To use SQL Server CE replication or remote data access (RDA), each computer running IIS must be configured by installing the version of the SQL Server CE Server Tools appropriate to the version of Microsoft SQL Server you are running. For more information, see Installing SQL Server CE on an IIS System and Configuring Connectivity Support in IIS.
Note The SQL Server CE Server Tools installer that ships with SQL Server CE contains components compatible with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Service Pack 1 and Service Pack 2. SQL Server CE Server Tools that are compatible with later SQL Server service packs are available at this Microsoft Web site.
Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC 2002 can use ActiveSync 3.5 or later to synchronize SQL Server CE over a serial, infrared (IR), or USB connection. When you use Pocket PC 2000 or Handheld PC 2000 devices, you must use SQL Server CE Relay in conjunction with IIS to synchronize over these connections. If you require SQL Server CE Relay for SQL Server CE connectivity, SQL Server CE Relay must be deployed to each desktop system through which you intend to synchronize. For more information, see Using SQL Server CE Relay.
Windows CE Deployment
The two aspects to Windows CE deployment are:
- Application deployment during development
- Final application deployment
The following topics address these aspects of deployment and describe the processes for deploying a Windows CE-based application.
