SQL Server Compact 3.5 Service Pack 2 Cumulative Update Package 7 RTW

| August 18, 2012 | 0 Comments

Hey folks, just wanted to let you know that cumulative update package 7 for SQL Server Compact 3.5 Service Pack 2 has been released to the web.

You can download the new bits over at http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2665342.

This is a hotfix for an incorrect sort order for a subscriber in SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 that synchronizes with a publisher in SQL Server.  For instance, you may have a column with an ASC index on SQL Server, but during sync, the sort order may not be specified.  The problem occurs due to an incorrect index creation statement in the .OUT file in the virtual directory on IIS.  Therefore, only the Server Tools need to be updated.  Both x86 and x64 versions of the update are available to download.

Keep in mind that cumulative updates 6 and above will allow your Windows tablets, laptops and Windows Embedded Handheld devices to sync with SQL Server 2012.

Go get things sorted out,
