    SQL CE 4.0 - Can't find 4.0.8902.1

    So decided to try and use Umbraco from Nuget package, I'm being told that can't find find SQL CE Native components that match version 8902. So I ensure I've got the latest SP 1 for SQL CE 4.0 and that version number is lower.

    So I download the Umbraco 8 zip to compare version numbers on the Native components....the zip file contains (for example) sqlceca40.dll with a File Version of 4.0.8902.1.

    Where are the Umbraco devs getting this hidden SQL CE 4.0 SP that nobody else seems to know about, including Microsoft?

    We turned it into a NuGet package here:

    And the original source is listed in this blog post:

    Note that you shouldn't have to install the components on your PC as long as the correct dlls are in place in your bin folder and the SQL CE assembly binding is in your web.config:

                <assemblyIdentity name="System.Data.SqlServerCe" publicKeyToken="89845DCD8080CC91" culture="neutral" />
                <bindingRedirect oldVersion="" newVersion="" />

    That makes sense thank you! Only way I can get Umbraco to function is to remove all other SQL CE installs from my machine, so I got it working.

    Sorry to resurrect old thread, but this is indexed pretty well.

    Workaround and some details here
