Hi for enyone interested I have installed SQLMOSUI in Visual studio 2010 follow the instructions in the documentation the .xps file as it has the images.

If you are using Windows Vista copy the file C:\Program Files\desarrolloMobile.NET\SQLMetal OSUI for Visual Studio\SQLMetalOSUIforVisualStudio.exe.config out of the directory to another drive or your my documents folder. Edit it as below then copy it back (Due to permissions)

Then set the path to SqlMetal.exe in the C:\Program Files\desarrolloMobile.NET\SQLMetal OSUI for Visual Studio\SQLMetalOSUIforVisualStudio.exe.config

It has to be a complete path including the exe with quotes.

        <SQLMetalOSUICtrl.Properties.Settings>
            <setting name="SQLMetalPath" serializeAs="String">
              <value>"C:\Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v7.0A\bin\SqlMetal.exe"</value>
            </setting>

It is a little buggy but worth the little effort

Yes I know this is old but I just came accross this the other day as im just starting out in compact databases. :)
