SQL Server Express setup snafu

P: n/a
I've installed and unistalled SQL Server 2000 and MSDE on my computer
as I needed it (my machine is a development machine).
I've tested SQL Server B2 and then uninstalled it, now when I try to
install SQL Server Express B3 I can't get the client side tools to
install (the command lines).
The server is apperantly working, but I can't log into it because I
don't get any of the clients.
How do I fix this?

I forgot to mention, I can't even get SQL Computer Manager to work, I
get the following error:
Snap-in failed to initialize.
Name:SQL Computer Manager
CLSID:{6BB32802-92E6-11D2-9967-0080C7DCB3DC}

You are better off asking this question in microsoft.private.sql2005.express. Please see'
http://communities.microsoft.com/new...r2005&slcid=us
for how to access these newsgroups.

Note also, that what you have is *not* Beta 3; Beta 3 has not been released
yet. Presumably you have the December Community Technology Preview.

Finally, a good advice when it comes to beta testing is to install on
machines you can afford to lose. I do almost all my beta testing of
SQL2005 on virtual machines.
