SQLite Storage on Windows 10 -> Release Version not working

I built an app that utilizes the SQLite Storage functionality of Ionic 2.

This works without any issues on iOS or Android.
On a Windows 10 device everything works fine as long as the deployed package is built as “Debug”.
When switching to “Release”, the database cannot be opened anymore:

let dbStorage = new Storage(SqlStorage, {name: "liftconsulting_db", backupFlag: SqlStorage.BACKUP_DOCUMENTS});

This creates an error “database could not be opened”.

Only the Release-Build has errors, the Debug build works as excpeted.
Anyone ran into the same issues or has any clues how to solve this?
