SyncFx Provider for SQL Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where is the provider for SQL Server as the local 'Client Connection'?  It seems to only support Compact Edition.  The Overview doc was all about workgroup servers but I can't find the providers for SQL Server as the local client. 

    Does anyone know what I'm missing?

  • If you're referring to the offline providers (the one used by the Local Database Cache Wizard in VS), it has no client provider for SqlExpress/Server. The provider combo is SqlCeClientSyncProvider/DbServerSyncProvider. There used to be a sample SqlExpress client sync provider but was pulled out from the download site already.

    If you're using the collaboration providers, SqlSyncProvider (which works for Sql Express, Sql Server and Sql Azure), the provider can be used as local and remote provider.
