Yes to Developer Edition, no to Express Edition.

I thought Developer is the same as Enterprise but with a limited license...

Thanks, do you know where the installation is initiated from within the SQL environment?

I really don't recall, fortunately it's not soemthing I do often enough to remember :)

I am pretty sure it begins with the SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio which is what you use for OLAP and SSRS.
