    ScadaAdmin.exe does not start correctly. I have checked that MSSQL Compact is installed and running on my computer. I am using the default directory structures. I have enabled all the required Windows features. The Event Log contains:

    Most likely, you have to install
    SSCERuntime_x86-ENU.msi and
    from the installation package.

    I have checked that MSSQL Compact is installed and running on my computer.

    How you did it?
    May be another version of SQL Server is running.


    The features in the screenshot are correct. They are needed for the web application.


    When I installed RapidSCADA it checked “Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5” during the Administrator install portion and reported no errors.

    When I try to install the SSCERuntime_x64-ENU.exe file I get the following message:

    MSSQL Install message.

    Windows 10 prevents me from installing the 32-bit version of MSSQL.

    The Event Log error is related to a file not found during startup of Administrator. What files is it looking for?


    Thank you for the info. There are 2 popular versions of MSSSQL Compact: 3.5 and 4. SCADA-Administrator requires 3.5, but 4.0 is already installed. These versions are not compatible.

    Could you try the following:
    1. Download DLLs from
    2. Copy them into C:\SCADA\ScadaAdmin
    3. Run ScadaAdmin.exe

    Please write about the result.


    I thought 3.5 was included in the 4.0 install. This is the text on the Microsoft site:

    SQL Server Compact 3.5 and SQL Server Compact 4.0 are installed and work side by side on a desktop. The existing installations of SQL Server Compact 3.5 or SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP1 or SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2 are not upgraded to SQL Server Compact 4.0 when you install SQL Server Compact 4.0 using the installer.

    I now interpret this to mean they can be installed together, but this install package doesn’t do it. After installing 3.5 specifically the ScadaAdmin application starts correctly.

    Thanks for the help!


    Thank you for the info. It may help to other users.
