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.
