Windows 10 Universal App (VS2015 Express)

Is it possible to use VistaDB in a Universal app, I can't seem to fing the DLL references.


They announced SQL Lite for UWP here

I would like to be able to use VistaDB as it easily supports encryption.  Let me know if there is an update in this regard.

Thanks

Oops find

Not at this point; there is no ADO.NET support (among other things) in those types of applications so no way to get to VistaDB.

Cheers


Funny I should happen to come by here looking to see if you guys had figured this out. :) 


There is a new way in the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (coming out this month) to access ADO.Net providers from UWP. 


I have been looking into it and just downloaded VistaDB again so I can test it for myself.  I have a feeling the people who did the testing probably only tested Microsoft providers.  So this is a much better test to me.


Will post back when I have some findings.
