Do you see Management Studio? This is Enterprise Manager and Query Analyzer in one. If not, run the setup again and choose Workstation Components.

There is no Management Studio. My PC is stand alone PC and its not connected to any network. I wanna install SQL Server 2005 and run all in the same PC for my learning purpose.
