Doing this ensures that the components can be serviced in future by Microsoft Update. Administrator privileges are required on the machine for installing SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition. Independent Software Vendors and application developers redistributing SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition components or DLL’s as part of their application will need to take care of the serviceability of SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition components. Microsoft Update can only service SQL Server 2005 Compact Edition components that are deployed by using the installer - SQLServerCE31-EN.msi.
