Visual Studio & SSMS 17.x extension, standalone app and command line tools, for managing all aspects of your SQL Server Compact/SQLite database files' data and schema, including generation of code, database diagrams and database documentation.
If you use my free tools, I would be very grateful for a rating or review here
Visual Studio Extension
Download the latest version of the Visual Studio extension (for both 3.5, 4.0 and SQLite) from Visual Studio MarketPlace
You can download the daily build from VSIX Gallery.
You can also automatically get the latest build of the Master branch directly in Visual Studio
If you need the Visual Studio 2010 extension, please contact me, and I can provide a link!
SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) 17/18 Extension
You find the extension under the View menu in SSMS.
Download the latest version of the SSMS 17 extension (for both 3.5, 4.0, SQLite and SQL Server) from Visual Studio MarketPlace
You can download the daily build of the SSMS 18 extension from VSIX Gallery
Installing the SSMS 17 extension
Use the following command line:
"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio 14.0\Common7\IDE\vsixinstaller.exe" "full path to extension.vsix"
Installing the SSMS 18 extension
As the VSIX 2017 installer does not support installation into a VS Shell edition, and generally because SSMS extensions are unsupported, you will have to manually install the extension (at least until I or someone else decides to create an installer)
From an administrator command prompt:
Create a folder called "SqlCeToolbox" under
C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18\Common7\IDE\Extensions\
Copy the extension.vsix that you downloaded from VSIX Gallery to the new folder.
Unzip the extension.vsix to the new folder. For example:
"C:\program files\7-zip\7z.exe" e extension.vsix -y
You should now have 48 files in the SqlCeToolbox folder, and the extension is "installed".
