Finding the app on my system

Sep 15, 2012 at 8:41 AM

I installed this and then typed 'sql' into my Windows 7 Start search box. Nothing returned. 'compact' - same again.

** It would be useful to install something into the Start menu **

So, I looked for the app in Program File (x86). Looked for folders starting with 'SQL', and found nothing. In amongst the mass of folders I spotted 'Christian Resma Helle', which I hadn't seen before. Found it!

Now, i know there is a tradition of creating folders: Program Files\DeveloperName\ApplicationName, but it's one of the worst conventions ever introduced. And it is one even Microsoft ignore.  

** "Program Files\SQL Compact Query Analyser" makes much more sense **

These are really minor issues, but the little things help create a pleasurable experience.

Keep up the good work, it is appreciated.

Hi Greg,

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll keep it noted for the next release :)

Hi Greg,

I checked in some changes to the setup project that resolved the issues you reported. I'll make a new drop once I get time to test it more thoroughly. If you don't mind building from source then you can grab the latest source and build the Setup project

Thanks again for your suggestion
