You might faced some problem while installation of SQL Server 2005.

Try to re-intall with Tools - Workstation components.
and do not use the default instance, use the named one

To use the management tool in SQL Server 2005 like you would use SQL 2000 you have to install an additional component.

If you go to this website:

Or search for SQL 2005 Management Tool
you should be able to find it.

Download and install this item and see if you have the items.

Hi,

In principle I diskagree with jlrbjw, but its worth a shot.

That is, as you suggest in the question, installing developer should have installed SSMS; you shouldn't need to install SSMS Express.

Firstly I'd try a reinstall of the workstation components to see if that fixes it. Else I'd get the Widnows Installer Clean-up utility from MS and use it to remove the installed settings for SQL, and try the installation again.

Cheers
