  • Beware the uninstallation's affect on Visual Studio 2005:

    "After uninstall of SQL Everywhere (Beta) it doesn't restore the Server explorer links to SQL Mobile to integrate with Visual Studio!  If you try uninstalling and reinstalling SQL Mobile this doesn't fix the problem nor does uninstalling just Visual Studio or just SQL Server.  I had to totally uninstall SQL Server and Visual Studio to get it working with SQL Mobile."
