How to update SQLite for Universal Windows Platform for Visual Studio 2019

A UWP app uses SQLite for Universal Windows Platform. It was built quite a few years ago. Now, I am using VS 2019 and it does not accept SQLite for Universal Windows Platform. How can I use SQL Lite with VS 2019?

Good day @zipswich

SQLite is not Microsoft product. It was simply embedded as/in extension SDK with the components needed to use SQLite. It is not directly supported and as you can see even in your link it explicitly advice "Further information, including complete documentation, may be found at the official web site "https://www.sqlite.org/"."

The SQLite project has a great supporting channels and I highly recommend you to use these:
https://www.sqlite.org/support.html

I cannot advice or recommend this for someone in the forum which I am not fully familiar with his system/case, but In the mean time you might want to try to simply ignore the prompt error and go on this installation.

Please check the following thread which include the exact same question and some more info

Thanks a lot for the tip. I don't know why my search missed the same question you referenced.��

I forgot to mention that SQLite for Universal Windows Platform 3.30.1 works fine with VS 2019 despite the claimed incompatibility as suggested by the answer.

Thanks for the thanks

Yes, it should work since it is not really need any requirement from the UWP. After all SQLite is designed to be embedded inside any code. In fact theoretically, you can use SQLite as it is downloaded from the original site and embed it into your UWP and it should work in theory. It is simply that Microsoft did the work and prepare it "ready to be used".

I simply cannot advice directly in the forum in cases that the question is not pure yes/no or quantity answer, without testing the exact scenario myself :-)

Have a great day
