    Is this error being generated when you try to open a SQL Compact db located on a shared drive? If so, move it onto the same drive as the application. You can't open Sql Compact files on shared drives.

    Thanks for your reply.

    Yes. When i am trying to open db getting an error.

    Shared drives means permission level? Could you please give me some more clarity on this.

    Is your database on the same drive as the web site?

    I think you need to add proper IIS permission into your app_data folder

    something like IIS_IUSRS  or IIS_Machine name depensing on your iis version
