If it is simple persistence of settings, then you need to use System.IO and stream the settings to a simple file using a StreamWriter and StreamReader objects , if security is an issue, use System.IO.IsolatedStorage.
You can also use the .NET standard for this scenario which is use of an XML file. SQL compact lacks features because it is..erm....compact, and not service based where SQL express is, and definitely overkill just to persist settings.
I would go for System.IO first, then XML, and finally SQL compact to resolve this problem.
