Microsoft SQL Compact Edition
uses the Microsoft SQL Compact Edition database to store all
of your data. The Compact Edition is designed for easy installation
and maintenance, and does not require any networking or database
knowledge. SQL Compact Edition takes only a minute to install,
and may in fact already be in use on your computer depending
on other programs you may have installed.
Compact is not present when you install Credenza, it will
automatically download and install it for you before proceeding
with the Credenza installation. If for any reason you cancel
out of the install part way through, it is possible that SQL
Compact will not be properly installed. For this reason we've
also provided the direct link to download/update the Microsoft
SQL Compact on your computer.
SQL Compact Edition cannot be installed if you do not yet
have the Microsoft .NET .35 Framework.
