mssql msg 945 level 14 state 2

Hi!
I moved two databases over from our old server MSSQL 2005 Express to our new server MSSQL 2008 Express. I have not been able to access these two databases since. Unfortunately, it looks like MSSQL 2008 Express does not come with SQL studio management so I am left with SQLCMD. I tried using use databases_name and go and got the following error...msg 945 level 14 state 2    database can not be opened due to inaccessible or insufficient memory. I am sure it is not a memory issue. So any ideas how to fix this using SQLCMD?
TIA

it seems that your databases not attached to new server. Attach them prior to use.

This screen is belong to the sql server express installation. You need to download another executable from the link given above post. Than run that executable... In the options section there would be a choise about installing SQL Server Management Studio.

I had to install advanced tools first, but I still am getting the same error when I try to access the databases with SSMS.
