sql express 2008 database to sql server 2008 database what bits do I need to download

I need a client program for my pc so I can put my sql express 2008 database on a sql server 2008.  My SQL server is off on some generic web host.

I tried management studio 2005 express version won't open my .mdf file but it opens my web host database.

I tried to download full version of sql server 2008 but couldn't find the management studio program in the download.   

Is there a trial or a preview I can download from microsoft that has the bits?



I don't ask many questions but I'm trying to partisipate in this community.

Good Luck

Haven't tried it yet, but one of the downloads comes with 'tools,' one of which is management studio (basic, they call it now, instead of express).

I'm just going to bet that SQL express product wasn't tested on vista ultimate using the default security config.  Once I reinstalled and specified a directory outside of "program files" for the data files.  Which I'm told is pretty common in a production environment for sql server.  The management studio was able to open my aspnetdb.mdf after I moved it to the data directory.

I should be good from here.

Good Luck

Hi Danny,
From your description, it seems that you would like make migration between servers for ASPNETDB.MDF, right?

I think you can refer to the blog below:


As far as I know, there is no problem to run SQL Server 2008 Express Edition in Windows Vista.

For the reason of User Account Control (UAC) feature, sometimes we need right-click the program icon and click Run as administrator to run a program as an administrator in Windows Vista.

download of Sql Server Management Studio Express for Sql Server 2008
