Help Collections (SQL Server Compact)

Because SQL Server Compact can be used with a variety of development tools such as Visual Studio, it is useful to have access to the documentation for those tools.

As a result, SQL Server Compact Books Online topics are integrated with, and link to, topics in other Help collections where appropriate. In particular, many programming reference topics link to the .NET Framework documentation.

Regardless of the installation order of SQL Server Compact Books Online, Visual Studio, and SQL Server Compact 4.0, the Help collections is available as a separate item on Start menu. For example, if you install SQL Server Compact Books Online on a computer that is running SQL Server 2008 R2, the SQL Server Compact Help collection will not be integrated with the SQL Server 2008 R2 Help collection. As a result, you will have exclusive documentation for SQL Server Compact 4.0.
