Configuring the Model

You can generate client/server applications with SQL Server, and local database applications with SQL CE. The access method is ADO.NET. 

If you are using a SQL Server database, the DBMS options are the same as for the .NET generator. 

However, if you are using SQL Server CE, in the DBMS Options you need only set the Database name and password. (See SQL Server CE Configuration).

If  you use Visual Studio 2003 you must always define the model property "Compact framework assemblies directory" with the resources path (for example "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio .NET 2003\CompactFrameworkSDK\v1.0.5000\Windows CE") 

In Upgrade 2  we have a new model property: Target Platform = Pocket PC 2003 / Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket pc / Windows Mobile 5.0 Smartphone. The default value is Pocket PC 2003.

Note: When you change the Target Platform all the standard classes are copied to the model directory.
