      <add name="SQLite Data Provider" invariant="System.Data.SQLite" support="3F" description=".Net Framework Data Provider for SQLite" type="System.Data.SQLite.SQLiteFactory, System.Data.SQLite" />

Development Notes Regarding the SQLite 3 Source Code
*** At this time, the necessary changes to the DLL to support Windows CE have not been completed.  All function calls that return or pass a 64-bit value have been wrapped, but the necessary OS changes have not been finished.

Steps for merging the sqlite3 core codebase:

  1. Download the latest sqlite3 source from
  2. Extract the source code to the SQLite.Interop\src directory of this project
  3. Open the src\select.c file.
  4. Add #include "../interop.h" to the top of the file where the other include's are.
  5. Scroll down the select.c file to around line 748.  Change the name of the function static void generateColumnNames to static void _generateColumnNames (note the underscore in front of the name).
  6. Compile it.
