SQL Server Management Studio

I have a new desktop, a WIN 7 64 bit and I want to install SQL Server Management Studio.

I have searched the web for the management studio only download have found 3 and none will install. issues with incompatibility and "needs sql server installed".

This is a desktop and I want to install only management studio .  I have SQL Server 2008 STD

SQL Server Management Studio is part of the server install package. You should be fine using the same media but only choose management studio (and maybe Business Intelligence Development Studio if you are required to build any BI components).

Why isn't the question asked during the install  "Do you wish to install client tools?"

I think the more windows does, the less the engineers work in the real world.

Sure it is.  It is an option you can disable, but by default it is included..
