I am using Enterprise Library 5.0 with SQL CE 4.0 compact database. My code is working fine when I have SQL CE installed on the local machine. But in server, we do not want to install SQL CE compact DB, instead we would like to use the Private installation method. I have followed the instruction provide in the MSDN Url, but still it is not working. When I ran my code, it is throwing below exception. I searched all over the places in the internet but, I could not find a definite solution so far. Did any one come across the same issue?

Here is my app config information

    <section name="dataConfiguration" type="Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.Configuration.DatabaseSettings, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data" requirePermission="false"/>

<dataConfiguration defaultDatabase="LocalDbContext"/>
    <add name="LocalDbContext" connectionString="Data Source=|DataDirectory|\LocalDb.sdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlServerCe.4.0"/>


Service cannot be started. System.TypeInitializationException: The type initializer for 'MyRepository' threw an exception. ---> Microsoft.Practices.ServiceLocation.ActivationException: Activation error occured while trying to get instance of type Database, key "LocalDbContext" ---> Microsoft.Practices.Unity.ResolutionFailedException: Resolution of the dependency failed, type = "Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.Database", name = "EventBackPlaneLocalDbContext".
Exception occurred while: while resolving.
Exception is: InvalidOperationException - The type Database cannot be constructed. You must configure the container to supply this value.
At the time of the exception, the container was:

  Resolving Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Data.Database,EventBackPlaneLocalDbContext
 ---> System.InvalidOperationException: The type Database cannot be constructed. You must configure the container to supply this value.
