Used file called SQLManagementStudio_x86_ENU.exe  on a Windows 7 32 bit computer.

Warning message says I must apply SQL Server 2008 Service Pack 1 (SP1) before you run SQL Server 2008 on this version of Windows.

But I am only interested in the management tools so I can connect to an existing SQL database on another computer (server).

Installation says it was successful, but from this point I don't see how to start the program.

Please advise...

I don't.  

Also search for "SQL" only showed the original downloaded file.
