Hi

I have windows 7 installed on my machine. I have downloaded sql server 2005 express edition on my machine. When I open sql server instance I don't see the server name (which is local to my machine). When I use .\SQLExpress I am getting error as shown in the screen shot.

Can I get the free SSMS for windows 7.

error message when connecting using sqlexpress

Download and install client tools (management tools) in the express edition for SQL Server 2008 or SQL Server 2012.

if you are having multiple instances in machine the you have to write like :


 ".\<InstanceName>"

.If you don't know Instance Name then go to sql server configuration manage and check its service.

Thanks,
