  • Hello,

    Please download and apply SP1 to the Visual Studio 2008 and also apply SP1 to the SQL server 2008 instance.

    About the SQL Server Management Studio Express, please download and install the SQL Server 2008 R2 version instead from the following link:


    The version of SQL Server Management Studio you are trying to install requires SP1 to be compatible with VS.
    Hope this helps.
