BackupConnection Object cannot be called from user code.

when I attempt to create an instance of the BackupConnection using the default ctor I get the following error message

SQL Backup Reader may not be called from user code

Is there anyway I can read the data from a backup for a table. I ask because my code only wants to work with backups and not the live databases.


I guess I should supply you a bit more information. I need to do a schema and data compare between two backup SQL Server 2008 databases. If I detect a schema or data difference I need to output the target database to a Sql CE sdf. I have the code working to output the database schema I just need to know how to read all records from each table in the backup using the SDK. I will then insert this data into the appropriate Sql CE database.
