SQLLink repeatedly crashes. After observing the Event Viewer logs, the faulty module is reported as ntdll.dll
This is a Microsoft SQL CE 3.5 issue, and the recommendations from Microsoft on the matter include updating the version of SQL CE used with the application. The update is not a full version update, but a hotfix designed to address a specific issue. Please refer to Microsoft's KB 2289547 to find out more.
- Stop the SQLLink 4 service.

On a 64-bit system, you should install both hotfixes (the 32-bit first and then the 64-bit version), while a 32-bit OS can safely ignore the 64-bit version.
The next step to take is to make a modification to the way the SQLLink Service runs when it starts. There is a file in the SQLLink installation folder called SqlLink4Service.exe.config. Open it in notepad, and right after the </startup> line, and just before the <appSettings> line, add the following lines:
<assemblyIdentity name="System.Data.SqlServerCe" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral"/>
<bindingRedirect oldVersion="126.96.36.199-188.8.131.52" newVersion="184.108.40.206"/>
- After making the change in the config file, start the SQLLink service back up again.
