I am installing a new instance of this on a new machine and I can't access the local server.  I have the management studio installed and I can use it to access my db on my remote server but it can not find the local one.  Any ideas?

...the server was not found or was not accessible...

If I browse for it nothing shows up for local servers.

Ensure it is actually there by looking in add/remove programs as express should have an instance for each one, if I remember right.

Are you entering just the server name or the server/sqlname?
