Help Collections (SQL Server Compact)
Because SQL Server Compact 3.5 can be used with a variety of development tools such as Visual Studio, it is useful to have access to the documentation for those tools.
As a result, SQL Server Compact 3.5 Books Online topics are integrated with, and link to, topics in other Help collections where appropriate. In particular, many programming reference topics link to the .NET Framework documentation.
Regardless of the installation order of SQL Server Compact 3.5 Books Online, Visual Studio, and SQL Server 2008, the Help collections will be integrated. For example, if you install SQL Server Compact 3.5 Books Online on a computer that is running SQL Server 2008, the SQL Server Compact 3.5 Help collection will be integrated with the SQL Server 2008 Help collection. As a result, you will have integrated documentation across various Microsoft products.
