SQLite Problem in Universal Windows Platform

Since they are no SQLite library that direct support Universal Windows Platform (Windows 10 app) currently yet, we are force to use the SQLite for Windows 8.1 instead. For those who use SQLite in Windows 8 / 8.1 app and wanted to upgrade their project to Universal Windows Platform, you may encounter th following message if you try to follow the tutorial of adding SQLite to Windows 8.1 project.

An exception of type ‘System.DllNotFoundException’ occurred but was not handled in user code

Additional information: Unable to load DLL ‘sqlite3’: The specified module could not be found. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x8007007E)

This can be easily resolve by adding the correct library references. Make sure Microsoft Visual C++ 2013 Runtime Package for Windows (Version 12.0) is added together with SQLite for Windows Runtime (Windows 8.1). The error should go away.

  1. Hey Dont you want to consider updating your KL Transit App? It’s a cool app and I hope you can bring it a UWP app someday. Or at least update it with the latest fares info.
