Dear Experts, can you advise on this one please? My knowledge around this area is very limited. I need to have SQL 2005 express and 2008 express installed side by side working with management studio express. This is on a laptop with Windows 7. I have been running fine with SQL 2005 and studio for a long time now. I did the following to install 2008 express:
1. remove studio management
2 install sql 2008 express - all ok
3 re-installed studio management (version9.00.2047.00)
So far so good. If I log in to SMME it looks like it only 'see's' SQL 2005 (my original install) and says on screen: SQL2005
I'm wondring how I can get to 'see' the SQL 2008 'instance' (if that's the correct word) - at long in to SMME there is a browse function but does not seem to find anything.
what version the shows in SMME will it starts with 10.x.x.x or 9.x.x.x if it starts with 10.x.x.x then your SQL Server version is already upgraded to SQL Server 2008 version otherwise you need to start
