I have VS2010 installed recently on a Windows 7 Home Premium laptop, SQL Express is running fine, but now i want to install Management Studio Express 2008 and it is not working.
I am using file: SQLManagementStudio_x64-ENU.exe
When I run it, it says it has "known compatibility issues". It says afterwards i need to install SQL Server SP1. I click Run Program, it extracts some files, then it come up with a window titled "SQL Server Installation Center"; but there is nothing having
to do with Management Studio Express on any of the options. I have searched around the internet to know that this is a recurring problem, but i can not seem to find anyone that has an answer.
How do i get this to install?
I can't get the SQL Server Management Studio to install. I'm running Windows 7 (32-bit), and have successfully installed the Sql Server 2008 R2 developer edition (from dreamspark.com). Some of the SQL Server (SQLEXPRESS) advanced Properties are
File Version: 2007.100.4000.0
Instance ID: MSSQL10.SQLEXPRESS
64-bit OS: No
Service Pack Level: 2
I downloaded the x86 SSMS 2008 express from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b
When I execute the download, I get a compatibility issues message stating I must apply SQL Server 2008 SP1 or later before I run SS2008 on my version of windows. When I run the program, it extracts all the files and then launches the SQL Server Installation
I select the "Installation" option for a new SS stand-alone or add features, which then launches the Setup Support Rules (Passed: 7, Failed: 0, W:0 S:0). I click OK, advancing to the Setup Support Files stage. Clicking on install completes
(P:10 F:0 W:1 (firewall) S:0), and then clicking on Next brings me to the Installation Type screen. I select the Add Features radio button & click Next, which then brings me to the Feature Selection screen.
It is here where I get stuck because I can't select any
Why do you make it so, so complicated?
I just want to install the piece of software that manages Azure databases. I've being downloading all kinds of files all day, getting incomprehensible error messages, and still am getting no where!
I'vw worked out that it's not this file: SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe
or this one: SQLEXPRWT_x86_ENU.exe
So please, which file is it, and where can I download it?
My question is as follows:
I need to instal SQL Server Express 2008 R2 in command prompt mode (unattended).
I was able to create a configuration file and i've tested this instal and it does work, installing the correct instance and everything.
However, in about 30 to 40 percent of the computers that i run this install, the unattended installation goes through it's motions and finishes, but when i go check the installed programs the only thing installed is the SQL SERVER Installation Center
<month> CTP. Nothing else is installed like the Configuration manager or the required instance. Has anybody else seen this? I'm trying to isolate the condition that creates this. It only happens on a percentage of the computers.
I'm offering below the contents of my Configuration file.
;SQLSERVER2008 Configuration File
; Specify the Instance ID for the SQL Server features you have specified. SQL Server directory structure, registry structure, and service names will reflect the instance ID of the SQL Server instance.

I tried to install SQL Server 2008 R1 Express with Tools on Windows Server 2008 R2. It installed, but the management studio failed to install because it said I already had Visual Studio installed and it needed Visual Studio service pack 1 before Management
Studio could install.
Visual Studio is nowhere to be found in Programs and Features, and when I try to install Visual Studio SP1, it won't install, saying:
A compatible version of Visual Studio 2008 was not detected on the system. This update is designed for only the Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (ENU) product family, and is not compatible with any Express editions.
Though I can't find any Express version of SP1 to try, and there is no SP1 in windows update.
I have several css style sheets I want to work with. I have copied them into the appropriate directory structure in my project. The styles are applied correctly.
But the manage CSS styles tool bar on the left margin doesn't seem to work correctly. At one point I had generated a style sheet and worked with it there, but now it not only can't find the one it generated, but the attach style sheet link doesn't respond at all, nor does anything in this bar. Same deadness with the CSS Properties bar. With or without a style sheet loaded in the editor -- a style sheet that is active in the project such that when I run it, the styles are applied.
VB version of studio, running on Vista home basic.
PS, the design mode works a lot better than the professional version I use in my day job on XP and server 2003.
