Check Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Express Edition Service.

You can also use SQL Developer from Oracle. Its a free tool provided by Oracle but it has a facility to connect to SQL Server database .

Select
object_name(rkeyid) Parent_Table,
object_name(fkeyid) Child_Table,
object_name(constid) FKey_Name,
c1.name FKey_Col,
c2.name Ref_KeyCol
From
sys.sysforeignkeys s
Inner join sys.syscolumns c1
on ( s.fkeyid = c1.id And s.fkey = c1.colid )
Inner join syscolumns c2
on ( s.rkeyid = c2.id And s.rkey = c2.colid )
Order by Parent_Table,Child_Table
