SQL Server Management Studio 2008  (not express) Installation

My programming computer crashed, so I got a new computer. It is a windows 8.1 OS.

On my previous development computer I had SQL Server Management Studio 2008 (not express, not R2). But I'm not exactly sure where I got it from to load it. I do have the original sql server 2008 CD's from the product, but when I go to install them, they say they are incompatible. It said I had to  install 3.5 framework, which I did, but it still does not allow me to install

I searched the web for SSMS 2008, but all I could find was the express version.

Please tell me what I need to do to install the SSMS 2008 on my windows 8.1 system. And where I can get the app that I need. Or how to get the app off of this CD I already own for the  SQL Server 2008 database.

thanks!

Express version of MS SQL Server does not differ from one you'd get with full edition. It's just Express (cause it's actually free).
Go ahead, download it from MS site.

http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35579 - I recommend using 2012 one, it will still be backwards compatible.

Download SSMS for SQL 2012 and use that.
