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?
We have SQL server 2008 installed in a virtual server and I just want to download tools for querying etc...om my pc. I downloaded the SQL Server 2008 Managemnt Express and installed the tools. My DBA is saying remove the express install and install the tools
from the full version. Is he correct or could I have used the SSME install to query the full version?
Is it ok to use the RTM release of management studio express R2 in a production environment?
When will it be officially realeased? The engine was released on 9/29/2010....
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?

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.
What the heck? Why am I getting this error? Server worked but I can not run Management Studio.
Edition update http://support.microsoft.com/kb/971268 does not help.
remove and fresh install Management Studio does not help.
I need to be able to manage a SQL Server 2008 database on a remote server. The hosting company suggests SQL Server Management Studio 2008 Express since I'm on a low budget. The first thing I found when researching this was a MS warning that SQL Server Management Studio Express shouldn't be used with hosted environments. The more I read, the more it looks like it would work but the more confused I get. If any of you have experience with this or know of a good tutorial covering it I'd be very grateful. Just getting SQL Server Management Studio 2008 Express installed has been a pain with needing .Net Framework 4.0 and updates and has eaten up hours I hadn't planned on.
My local OS is Windows 7 and the hosting server is Windows Server 2008.
I've been struggling with the following issue for 3 days: I can access and use my SQL Express 2008R2 database flawlessly from SQL Server Management Studio. But I can only intermittently
access it from Visual Studio (ultimate edition with TF Server). Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. I mostly see the error when I try to "Update Model from Database" within my Entity framework model, or when I try to access the database from
within Server Explorer.
Here is the error I see when I try to update my Entities form the Database: An error occurred while connecting to the database. The database
might be unavailable. An exception of type 'System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException' occurred. The error message is: 'Cannot open user default database. Login failed. Login failed for user 'Tim-PC\Tim'.'
I think the connection string is fine as I am able to connect
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.
Have used Visual Web Developer 2008 to make ASP application, with SQL server 2008 R2 Express for database. Works very nicely.
However, when I come to use Management Studio Express 2008 R2, I cannot see all my tables.
The ones I CAN see were created by the MS script that creates membership tables (and are called dbo.aspnet_membership etc), presumably because the owner of the tables was specified as 'dbo'.
The ones I can't see from Management Studio are the ones I created. I never specified an owner.
I think this is a permissions issue, but I can't fathom it. There's only ever been me on my development machine (laptop) doing it all, hence always the same log ins.
Running Management Studio as Adminstrator doesn't help.
I can't even ask Management Studio who own's the tables that I can't see because Management Studio can't see them so rejects the script.
Any ideas/links very (very) welcome !
**** Actually, it is even wierder. The tables in Management Studio have full structure, but are empty. But if I look at them in Visual Basic 2008 they are full !!! And...if I create a table in Management Studio it does not appear at all in Visual Basic, and likewise, a table created in Visual Basic does not appear at all in Management
