You should take a look at this page for a comparison of 5 different tools. http://erikej.blogspot.com/2011/01/comparison-of-sql-server-compact-4-and.html
Also - ErikJ has a free Toolbox that I use to manage SQL Compact 3.5, and it also works with SQLite. http://erikej.blogspot.com/
I use SQL Compact 3.5 because it supports Linq to SQL which I use throughout my application for queries against SQL Server. SQL Compact is also integrated into my application in VS - I don't know if SQLite does that or not or if it makes much difference.
Good Luck with your Morrowind Add-On!

Uhhhh yea! lol
I have read all of those pages you sent me to. They get quite deeply into the workings of the engine. Hoping I don't have to understand all that stuff to start using it. About to get the engine and studio and get to work.
It seems very "similar to" Access in the "one file holds everything". The open source developers doing the game engine and the construction set (CS) engine do everything in C, and of course this is written in C. I'm hoping I can crib parts of the CS already written which loads and unloads the game data to load that data into the SQLite database.
What are you using it for?
