SQL Server Compact EOL Audit

Check the end of life status of your SQL Server Compact Installations

SQL Server Compact (SQL CE) was designed as a lighter version of the full-blown SQL Server installation. However, the product has already been discontinued by Microsoft for a while. As a result, the last version of SQL Server Compact is going end of life soon. In September of 2019 Lansweeper also dropped support for SQL CE as the version used then was also going end of life. If you still have other applications running on a SQL Server Compact instance, it is best to start working on migrating them. We also made a complete and detailed blog regarding all the SQL Server (Compact) versions that go end of life.

To help you with finding servers or computers still running an SQL CE installation, you can run the report below to get an overview and when the specific version will go end of life.
