Windows Runtime VS full database encryption


#1

I was looking at different options of SQL Cipher. I don’t quite understand the difference between “Windows Runtime” and “ADO.NET - full database encryption”, anyone can help? Thanks

Hello @SheY

SQLCipher for Windows Runtime targets two different version of Windows Runtime, 8.0 and 8.1. These versions of Windows Runtime were meant for the earlier versions of the Surface tablet running Windows RT as well as Windows 8 and up in a sandboxed environment; target architectures include x86 and ARM platforms.

SQLCipher for ADO.NET is a client library that is based on System.Data.SQLite. This library includes much broader support of Windows desktop operating systems and provides both Linq and Entity Framework support. This package includes support for both x86 and x86_64.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to ask.
