The Toolbox requires one of these SQL Server Compact runtime MSIs to be installed, if you want to connect to a SQL Server Compact database file;
Download 3.5 SP2 - installed with VS 2010
Download 4.0 SP1 - installed with VS 2012
(No runtimes are installed with VS 2013 and VS 2015)

Issue
You get this error message:
