We just had an upgrade of all our computers here, and on one of them we loaded our licensed copy of Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2005 Developer edition. I then loaded the service packs (4 for SS). There is still no icon for SSMS in the Start Menu.

How do I enable SSMS in this version of SQL Server?

(OS: Windows 7 64-bit)

Did you search your system for SqlWb.exe or ssms.exe? If those aren't there then run setup again and make sure you choose "Workstation Components, Books Online and Development Tools."

  • In Windows Search, ssms.exe comes up, but errors out when it runs. I'll look at reinstalling. Commented Oct 17, 2011 at 18:07
