hi, i am trying to install the sql management studio 2008 R2 on a windows 2003 server sp2
I started install SQL remotely and got cut off, so my TS session ended, when i now run the setup, i get the following issues.

when i click new install or add features, it does the support files section, then i click install and i get

method not found 'boolean
microsoft.sqlserver.configuration.MsiExtension.MsiExtensionMetadata.get_IsSlipstramorpatch()'..

and so doesn't install

I already have an SQL database running on the system (2008 R2), which i have no management console for. So don't want to do any thing that could trash the database.
One of our issues is we can't backup the data base at the moment.
