I installed SQL Server 2008 R2 on my pc and can't find the SQL Server Profiler

After installed, I have the following installed in my pc:

configuration tools
integration services
import & export data (32-bit)
SQL Server Management Studio
SQL Server Business Intelligence Development Studio

This is the option I selected:

set up processing -> installation -> new installation or add features to an existing installation ->
sql server feature Installation -> shared features ->
In the shared features the following were checked:
business Intelligence Development studio
Client Tools connectivity
Integration Services
Client Tools Backwards compatibility
Client Tools SDK
Management Tools - Basic
SQL Client Connectivity SDK

What I am looking for is Performance Tools -> SQL Server Profiler

Are you trying to install SQL Express? SQLEXpress does not have Profiler

You have some alternatives though, like this one

could it be that you had SQL 2008 express installed before? If so you might want to try uninstalling your current standard edition and try installing again. Check this link:

Hold on, Also when you install, check Management Tools - Basic and make sure that
"Management Tools - Complete" is checked. If you don't have that option there, then probably is because you had a previous Express version that was causing trouble. So you will have to go with my previous comment.
