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
JenniferIT DirectorCommented:
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.

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.
