What are you trying to do?

A SQL Query against SQL Express - then either of the top two options.

A Integration package?

SQL queries tend to be stand-alone files; none of the solution/project stuff from visual studio, although you can do some of that for larger projects

SSMSE doesn't support database projects, it's not like the full product SSMS.

in SSMSE you would create a separate files instead for your project.
