In Visual Studio 2015 I am using System.Data.SQLite.

My project works perfectly in VS. My database is in /bin/debug.

When I deploy the project the database isn't being found.

I assume it isn't being copied or something else is happening.

Can you help with this?

The database file is not copied by System.Data.SQLite.  It is the
responsibility of the application developer to copy it during the
deployment process.  That being said, you can use a relative file
name for the "Data Source" connection string property and the 
database file will end up in the current directory (which may be
the application binary directory).  However, it is normally better
to use a fully qualified path to a database file that is *NOT* in
one of the build output directories (i.e. this prevent the database
from being accidentally deleted during the build, etc).
