SQL 2005 and 2008 side-by-side with Server Managerment Studio Express
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.
