SQL Server 2008 - What Else Am I Missing?

P: 6
Hi all.

I've been working in SQL 2000 for a while and have just installed SQL Server 2008 (the Free Edition (express I guess)) on my machine.

I've got MS Visual Web Developer Express which I've been able to create and connect to a table, but I've found no other tools like "Enterprise Manager" with the install.

I'm trying to connect using the ColdFusion Admin, but can't find my DSN name, and all other pertinent connection details.

Can someone point me in the right direction please? The combinations of searches I've tried on Google, have resulted in piss all as far as 2008 goes, so there's something I'm thinking I'm horribly missing here. Any help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Which one did you install?

Here's the download page.

I believe it was: SQL Server 2008 Express with Tools because I tried downloading it again and no extra tools came up on the re-install.

I set a download last night to grab: SQL Server 2008 Express with Advanced Services, will this include Enterprise Manager with it, or is there something else I'll need to download?

Starting SQL 2005, it's called Management Studio, not Enterprise Manager. Look for it on your Programs Menu

k. Not quite sure why you're recommended a 2005 product when I've got 2008 installed...but I'll try figuring it out and post back my results.

I'm going to uninstall 2008 and install 2005 to see if I can get the Manager you're talking about. Thanks for your assistance.

I'm not recommending sql 2005. What am trying to say is it's no longer called Enterprise Manager. It's called Management Studio in sql 2005 and sql 2008. It's called Enterprise Manager in sql 2000.
