I agree that there is a total lack of documentation however a quick google search for "sqlite for windows runtime tutorial" pulls up a number of good tutorials to get you started. Would of giving it five stars if there was some documentation.

There is - still - no documentation.

What kind of JOKE is this?? There is absolutely no documentation on how to use this with Visual Studio! All roads lead to the SQLite main web site, that is fine, but where is the documentation that says, if you are using Visual Studio, here is how to get started??

I'm sure this is a great database, it seems to have a great reputation, but it still stinks.

I'm not done, I've come to sqlite web site for a couple of years now because it is touted as an alternative, but STILL there is nothing to get started.

It is obvious that sqlite comes from a linux background, but hek, if you are advertising this for Windows Phone, Windows Runtime, then you should at least have a working recipe to get a basic sample working. Even something as simple as pre-made visual studio solution!!!

Please keep up the good work!!

Decent enough, but totally spoiled by a complete and utter lack of reasonable documentation.

Example: I copied a SQLite-using project to a new machine. And then the fun began!
Where is "this"? Can't find "that"! Need to install "something else".

If there was a simple list of the steps needed to actually make this work, my life would be easier. As it is, just getting it to work is painful enough that I'm seriously considering just making my own binary file format. It's work, but at least I'm not at the mercy of a long chain of "can't find X

Exactly what I was looking for , Wonderful tool

Excelent - thanks a lot to authors

It's small, it's fast, it's absolutely wonderful inside of a Windows Store app. I could build my own local storage, or just do settings and key/value, but SQLite is so much nicer. The only nuisance is that you can't do an "Any CPU" compile with it (so if you want to support x86, x64, and ARM you have to include three versions of your app in your submission), but that little bit of extra work to create a good MSBuild input is so worth it.

Using it in multiple C++/CX projects. Easy to integrate and use. Very reliable. Performance is very good. Thanks!

Very good database for Modern UI styles and very easy to use

by WhiteWhisker | October 30 2012

Very helpful when porting an app from iOS/Android, can now share the same database logic across all apps.

  • Installed the extension, now what?
    1 Posts | Last post June 20, 2016
    • So I installed the extension in VS 2015. I can find no documentation on how to use it. There's no reference to it in any of the menus or windows. I don't see it listed in the add reference dialog. It's not available as an Import or Using statement. Do I have to browse for it? If so, how is this any better than installing it to a project via NuGet?  TONS of people have asked for documentation specific for using this extension in Visual Studio. PLEASE follow up and give us a "getting started" document for this Visual Studio extension!

It seems like this may be related to the updated version of SQLite since our older release source seem to inherit this problem when we update to I can't figure out how to get the 3.8.6 version of the VSIX package to test if this is part of the issue or not.
