Entity Framework 6 SQL Server Compact 4.0 Slow Startup


The development machine is 64-bit.  It takes ~20 seconds to open the SQL Server Compact database.

None of the online tips I’ve found fix it.

Partial Solution

The best I can do is to change the project property Build

I check Prefer 32-bit.


Now it takes 9 seconds to open, still too slow.
