Release Notes

Standalone version with (most of) the same functionality as the add-in, for SQL Server Compact 4.0. (Let me know if you miss anything)

Useful for anyone not having Visual Studio Professional or higher installed.
Requires .NET 4.0 and the SQL Server Compact 4.0 runtime.

Version 3.7 changes:
- Same version number as add-in to avoid too much confusion
- Showing column names with underscore (_) in query result grid properly
- Migrate and export of large database files was broken in several ways - now fixed
- Show message when export to sqlce is complete
- Better experience when Report Viewer is not installed

Reviews for this release

I dont't know how to work without it!!! Very clear, functional, efficient, small tool. Available also for SqlCe 3.5 which allows me to handle databases of some older apps. Erics support and care for his works is also outstanding.

What a fantastic little tool! I'm surprised SQL Server Management Studio doesn't come pre-packaged with this. Anyway, thanks guys! You really helped me out there.

A very handy and quick tool that delivers everything I need in SQL Server Management Studio when dealing with CE databases, which is great since CE is no longer supported in SSMS 2012. The standalone is much more responsive than the VS Server Explorer. Nice work!
