VS2008 SP1 Beta Unable to Open SQL Server Compact 3.5 .SDF Files RRS feed

  • Question

  • Since installing SP1 for VS2008 I have been unable to open .SDF files within the Server Explorer. Specifically when I attempt to open the Tables node I receive the error - 'failed to retrieve data for this request'.

    I have another VM with same CS2008 SP1 but that seems to be working fine. I have seen this post logged before, did not see any resolution to that.

  • VS2008 has been released for a long time, so please do use RTM version instead of beta versions. Beta versions tend to have problems, and are usually not supported by Microsoft.
