  • Hi joselazcano,

    Its depends, if your db is encrypted and definitely you cannot access directly from your application.

    And I'm not sure what is your database, I found some solution online that indicate the Oracle database can be accessed from WinCE: http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E12095_01/doc.10303/e12090/nvwcetu.htm

    ADO.NET is also possible to access to the SQL database as I know.
