The exe file needs 6 MB of available hard disk space for extracting the MSIs.

        To download the SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 (SSCERuntime-ENU.exe):
        1. In the Files in this Download section at the bottom of this page, click the SSCERuntime-ENU.exe link.

        2. Do one of the following:
          • To start the extraction immediately, click Open or Run this program from its current location and specify an extraction location on your computer.
          • To copy the download to your computer for extraction at a later time, click Save or Save this program to disk and specify a location to save the .exe file on your computer. Double-click the .exe file to extract the installation files.

        To install the SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 executable (SSCERuntime-ENU.exe):
        1. After you have downloaded the SSCERuntime-ENU.exe file to your computer, locate this file in the folder you specified in step 2 above.

        2. Double click the SSCERuntime-ENU.exe file to start the extraction process.

        3. In the SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 Self-Extractor dialog box, specify the folder to which you want to extract the files and click OK.

        5. To install SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2, click the SSCERuntime_x86-ENU.msi and/or SSCERuntime_x64-ENU.msi file and follow the setup instructions on the screen.
        On a 64-bit Computer, install both the 32-bit and the 64-bit version of the SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 MSI files. Existing SQL Server Compact 3.5 applications may fail if only the 32-bit version of the MSI file is installed on the 64-bit computer. Developers should chain both the 32-bit and the 64-bit MSI files with their applications and install both of them on the 64-bit Computer. Refer to the KB article or to the Install.txt file that is extracted with the MSI files for more information.
