The Initialization utility (dbinit) can be used to create databases that can be used on Windows CE. However, you cannot copy them directly to a Windows CE device from this utility. You must manually copy databases created with the dbinit utility to your Windows CE device.
Enable checksums for Windows CE databases
When creating a database that will be deployed to Windows CE, you should enable checksums. This helps to provide early detection if the database file becomes corrupt.
At a command prompt on your computer, navigate to the directory where you want to create your database.
Create your database by entering the following command:
dbinit -s database-name.db
The -s option enables checksums for the database.
You can also configure database properties such as encryption and page size using the Initialization utility. See Initialization utility (dbinit).
Copy the database to your Windows CE device.
