SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU / SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU

I downloaded both of these to support my VS 2012 efforts on a new PC.   I decided not to go with the new LocalDB version for now because I might also do development on an older PC box with VS2010.

SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU setup worked fine, my app came up on the new machine (yay!)  

When I launch SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU it starts the same panel as for setting up SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.  So I stopped it.

I was doing some research but could not parse out what I've got here.   There's a new program installed called SQL Server Data Tools, which launches VS2010.

I was expecting to need Management Studio when I'm running my app under IIS to test  multiple users, and needing to disconnect the SQL connection when I want to go back to debugging under VS2012 directly (though maybe there's another way to do that).  Also, I figured I might make some use of Management Studio at some point.

Any help with understanding the relationship of these downloads and tools would be appreciated.

Thanks!
