  • Hello,

    You need a product key to install SSMS for Standard/Enterprise edition and you need a license to connect to a SQL Server of that editions.

    There is also a free SSMS Express Edition available: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29062 => SQLManagementStudio_....exe
