Hi There,

Ok I have not been working on SQL and .NET for a couple of years.  Well I want to reinstall SQL and in particular have the managment studio. I have no idea how to get it back. I have downloaded a number of "versions" but there appears to be no where to install or add the management studio... could someone help me get this up and running. I have a database I want to mount but alas alak I cant.

Kind Regards

Simon

Express versions often do not include the Studio Management Express.  There is a larger download that includes the SSMSE in your case you can download the SSMSE install from http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=08e52ac2-1d62-45f6-9a4a-4b76a8564a2b

I would download from the link and, if prompted, just install client tools/management studio and none of the core database objects.

Ok I have come back to the road block I ecountered before... there apears to be no where to actually include the management studio..

I also got a message about possible compatablity issues.  I would have thought that this was the latest update and thus wouldnt need to require another upgrade to service pack 2....

I have include two jpgs to display my issues...

KInd regards

Hi there,

Well I downloaded SP1 and took the option to add features.  Well the management studio is not available or even exists on this screen.  (see file attached)... So I have tried SP1 SP2 and in none of the instances does the management studio display... what can I do now..

Kind Regards

can you see if you have the following path?

C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\100\Tools\Binn\VSShell\Common7\IDE\Ssms.exe

or an equivlalent

or do a file search for ssms.exe

I dont know why it didnt want to install but in the end I downloaded the option with advance services... in effect everything. I then uninstalled everything that had SQL in the heading... I then reinstalled. this time I got the option for Management Studio Express and included it.

It installed fully and correctly except for an error right at the very start.

"An error occured creating the configuration section handler for user settings/Microsoft .SQLServer.configuration.LandingPage.Properties.Settings: Could not load file or assembly........so on"

Anyway I decided to push on and it worked...

Thanks to those that took the time to help. Simon
