Sync between SQL CE on Windows Mobile and SQL CE on Desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi everybody!

    I 'm new to this "synch world" and the question i have is (at least how i think) something easy: is it possible to synchronize two SQL CE databases (one on a windows mobile device and one on desktop PC)? I didn' t find (at least in my understanding) anything which could answer this question.

    I 've seen all this tutorials describing the use of a central SQL Server, but this is something i cannot use.

    Actually i don't care if the synchronization process is initiated on the mobile device or on the desktop (or should i care??).


    If there is someone who can point me in the direction of how to accomplish this task ... i would be grateful.


    Thanks in advance

  • afaik, Sync Fx out of the box doesnt support peer-to-peer sync between SQL CE database on a device and on desktop. The SqlCeClientSyncProvider that runs on a device syncs with a DbServerSyncProvider and not another SQL Ce provider.  you'll have to write your own custom provider solution to get thru this limitation.
