Hi every one

I'm working on Northwind database, I could get access to the tables by code using, but when I try to load the tables in server explorer, after adding the database, I can't see the tables and I get the Error:

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Sdk.Sfc, Version=, Culture=neutral ...

what is the problem?


by code it is working:

using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Linq;
using System.Text;
using System.Data.SqlServerCe;
using System.Data.SqlClient;
using System.Data.Sql;
namespace ConsoleApplication2
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            SqlCeConnection Connection = new SqlCeConnection("Data Source=E:\\Northwind.sdf;"); 
                SqlCeCommand Command = Connection.CreateCommand();
                Command.CommandText = "SELECT * FROM Employees";
                SqlCeDataReader Reader = Command.ExecuteReader();
                while (Reader.Read())
                    Console.WriteLine("\n RegionId={0}\t RegionDescription={1}",Reader.GetSqlInt32(0).Value,Reader.GetSqlString(1).Value);
            catch (SqlCeException ex)
                Console.WriteLine(ex.Message); ;
                if (Connection.State == System.Data.ConnectionState.Open)
