Hi! I am facing problems with sql server 2008.
I installed sql server 2008 and it was installed successfully. But when i went to start menu then only following features were displaying
1- sql server configuration manager
2- send errors and reports
3- sql server installation center.

But other features like query analyzer, enterprize manager are not displaying.
Then some one said me to install sql server 2008 management studio also. Then i also installed management studio but i could not access database engine. An error occured " server was not found or instance was not valid"
please guide me what should i do?
Note:i am usin window 7

You might have more luck posting under the "MS SQL" forum (this is the MySQL forum).

First advice I can offer is to check your Services applet and see if the Microsoft SQL Server service is listed and running etc.

In microsoft configutation managar, Microsoft SQL Server is running. but how can I access query analyzer and enterprize manager
