Recently I have been trying to install Microsoft's SQL server express 2008 management studio on a windows 7 machine. This has come of no avail since every one of my attempts has resulted in an error. Or I shouldn't say error, but more like it brings me to the SQL server installation center every time. I have tried to come up with the necessary requirements, AKA windows Power shell, Windows installer 4.5 and nothing has come out of that either. I keep getting messages saying that the articles I'm reading do not apply to me. If anyone could possibly lend a hand, that'd be wonderful. Thanks.

You do have the specified MS.NET Framework 2.0 installed, right?

I have even better than that. I have the latest version 4.0 I think. Or at least that's what I saw the last time I looked at my programs. Let me know if there's any information you need.

Hi again,
After some more research, I have come to the conclusion that ending up at the installation center is what is supposed to happen. It was in a tutorial by Symantec, believe it or not. I followed it, for the database engine itself was installed already by either VS express CSharp 2008 or visual web developer 2008 (I can't remember which), and I clicked on system configuration checker. Well, the checker asks me to "browse for SQLServer installation media". What is meant by "Media"? It makes no sense to me if there was no CD rom provided with the install or anything like that. And then next, the tutorial told me to wait till the checker was done, and afterward, it would automatically bring me to the next step including configuring the services behind everything. Further guidance would be appreciated. Thanks.
