I have successfully installed SS 2008 R2 Express. I'm having trouble installing the management console for SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition. I've done this with previous version of SS with no problems. The documentation that I've found
isn't very helpful.
I downloaded the SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe file from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b.
I ran this. The app that ran doesn't look any different than the installer for SS 2008 R2 Express. I then chose the option under installation for a new install or adding options to an existing installation. I clicked this thinkg I
needed to add the SSMS to my current installation. I saw no option to install the SSMS though. It seemed like it was just going to reinstall SS 2008 R2 Express. I looked at all of the other options but didn't see a way to do this.
Can someone please tell me what I need to do to install the management console? I'm extremely dependent on this and need to get it installed to work with SS. What am I missing?
