Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, I have a relatively new install of VS 2008 Standard. I have created a small database using SQLServerCE 3.5 and used it sucsessfully in a VB project. I want to display some of the data from the CE database in a Web page so I created an project. I simply have a line of HTML a SQLDataSource pointing to the .sdf file and a databound grid to display data from the datasource. The live display in VS looks good. When I test this project I see the following in IE. (Note if I create an identical project by using a SQLServer Express connection everything works OK so this seems to be down to a problem with SQLServerCE) Any ideas very gratefully received.
