    Hi,

    Installation of SQL Server 2008 express is fully supported on Windows 8 please see hardware and software reqyire emtn for SQL Server 2008

    But you are correct in SQL server management studio 2008 express download no information for windows 8 is mentioned.

    You can download SQL server 2012 express SP1 and can manage SQL server 2008 with it.Please download below

    SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe

    Hope this helps
