SQL 2012 - What files to install / Explain Files

Question
What are all files for on the install download for  SQL 2012 Express.

Thoughts
I installed the wrong files and had problems.  Thanks to Bill Ross http://www.experts-exchange.com/Database/MS-SQL-Server/SQL_Server_2008/Q_28391734.html
I was able to correct the problem.

Files   (* indicated files I installed to have a good installation)
     * SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe
     * SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe
       
        SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe
        SQLEXPRWT_x64_ENU.exe
        SqlLocalDB.MSI

The following video might help

Thanks for the help for me and hopefully others that might get to this point.

That depends very much on your needs but if no5t sure what to get just get the one that covers it all:
<<
•Express with Advanced Services (contains the database engine, Express Tools, Reporting Services, and Full Text Search)
•This package contains all the components of SQL Express. This is a larger download than “with Tools,” as it also includes both Full Text Search and Reporting Services.
>>

and  SSMS - SQL management tools that include the LocalDB.


ENU\x64\SQLEXPRADV_x64_ENU.exe 1.3 GB

and SSMS tools

ENU\x64\SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe
