This blog post is meant to give different build version numbers of our SQL Server Compact Releases. This blog post is a living one and gets updated for every release we make.

 

Before getting into the mapping, first you want to know the version you are having.  There are multiple means: 

Registry: HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\*\DesktopRuntimeVersion

File Properties: Check file properties of some SQL CE DLL and check for "File version" the first line of version tab
