SQL server 2014 Agent Nopt Starting

I have  afresh install of SQL sever 2014.  I am trying to install agent in Config manager.  The services starts and then stops.   I understand you can not do Agents with Express, But I do not believe I have express.  

Please how can I determine if I do have express and if not any ideas what I am doing wrong

Thank You

Run the following query:

select @@version;

Open in new window

edit:  if you are not on express, check in the event logs for more details as to why the service is stopping.  if it's not self explanatory, please post additional details

In Express Edition the service won't start at all since it will be disabled.
Did you check the Event Log for errors?
