how to install sql profiler on SBS 2008

Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I've been trying to add sql profiler to the intance of SQL 2008 standard I have installed on the server for a week now and it keeps failing.  when i go to add new options i check the box for management tools complete but the setup never works and the tools are never installed.

I was told to uninstall sql and reinstall it but it did not help, it seems that the sql that comes preinstall on SBS for sharepoint is causing the profiler not to install and i cant uninstall sharepoint.

i've tried to force the installation with a script i found here but no luck.

anybody got any suggestions?
