Default Can't find Management Studio after install?

I have installed MS SQL Server Express, MS SQL Server Express Advanced, and all the associated tools downloads, and I still cannot find a SQL Server Management Studio Express exe or icon or menu item anywhere. I know I chose to install it, and I have installed SQL Server Express correctly as I am working thru two Wrox's Visual Web Developer texts with it supporting my MS VWD install. I just can't find an exe anywhere.

Any ideas?

SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio) comes with SQL Server Express Advanced edition, so it should be there. What i would do, if I were you, would be to uninstall everything you list below, and then just install SQL Server Express Advanced.

You should be good to go at that point.

Thanks Scott ... I did exactly that, and lo and behold it worked. I was going nuts trying to get SSMS to install.

I like the new interface ... not too bad at all.

Thanks again!
