Can I use SQL Profiler on SQL Express DB

On our server we have a full version of SQL Server 2008 and when I develop against that I am able to use SQL Profiler.  On my laptop I have SQL Server 2008 Express and miss the use of the profiler when away from our office.  Is there a way I can use the SQL Profiler on Express?

Hi canuckconsulting,

    You can profile SQL express 2005 / 2008 through below profiler.

The express edition does not ship with an SQL Server Profiler.

You could get the development edition installed on your laptop (about 50USD) or use other similar opensource tools -
