BUG #: 2634 (SSCE)
Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition version 1.1 (SQL Server CE) creates a temporary database that it uses for storing temporary data.
Several SQL Server CE users have large databases that create large volumes of temporary data during synchronization. Large databases cause the SQL Server CE application to fail because of insufficient storage space on the default storage device for both the main database file and the temporary database file.
SQL Server CE creates all database files in the Temp folder on the Windows CE device. Because SQL Server hard codes the temporary file location, applications cannot specify an alternate location for the temporary database files.
To resolve this problem, obtain the latest service pack for Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition. For additional information, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:

HotfixNOTE: The following hotfix was created prior to Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition Service Pack 1.
The English version of this fix should have the following file attributes or later:
Version File name ----------------------------------------------- 1.1.3111 Ssce10.dll 1.1.3008 Ssceca10.dll 1.1.3008 Sscecw10.dll (Not included for x86em)
NOTE: Due to file dependencies, the most recent hotfix or feature that contains the preceding files may also contain additional files.
Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article. This problem was first corrected in Microsoft SQL Server 2000 Windows CE Edition Service Pack 1.
The fix adds the SSCE:Temp File Directory property to allow you to change the temporary file location.
