Hi experts,
I need to install Mgmt Studio 2008R2 and BIDS onto a few desktops.

I can't seem to find the correct download file. The desktops are 32 bit so the SQL Management Studio x64.exe will not run.

(My full SQL install file is x64 so I can't use that for installing Mgmt Studio on the 32 bit PC)

Thanks for any tips. Jack

Look for the "All SQL Server 2008 R2 Downloads" link at the bottom right of this page. It has everything, including one for Management Studio. http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/sqlserver/get-sql-server/try-it.aspx#tab3

Thank you, JamesK. I looked at every page.

Only the Express version of Management Studio is available for free download. Because we want our developers to be able to create SSIS packages and use Mgmt Studio - on their (32 bit) desktops .... is this even possible? We cannot use our full 2008R2 install file to install these on the desktops because the install file is Enterprise 64bit.

Any ideas? Thanks

For that you need to buy developer edition.

SQL 2008 Developer edition may not be available now for general purchase (such as at Amazon). If it were available, it is really inexpensive - under USD50. I could be wrong, so you may want to search to see if it is available for purchase somewhere.

If you can't find it in the market place, it is still available for those who have MSDN developer license. But that is a comparitively more expensive proposition. Unless you must have SQL 2008, you might want to go with SQL 2012.

The licensing terms of the developer edition does not allow the use of it in production. It is just meant for developers.

You can install just the client tools from a full install - even if the install is the x64 installation media. The installation media for 2008 and above now contain both x86 and x64 installations, but even if that were not the case - the client tools are x86 and will install on the x86 platforms.

Thanks Jeff W - you're exactly correct.
I was able to install these developer tools onto an XP machine 32 bit and a 64 bit Windows 7 desktop. That's very convenient.
