    Unanswered: Latest and Greatest SSMS

    Hi all,

    SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 are currently on this machine. I only need to have the latest SSMS and SQL Server Express.

    1. Will uninstalling both versions of SQL Server 2008 leave my databases intact for use with a new version of SQL Server Express?
    2. Can you direct me to the latest download of SSMS and SQL Server Express? Is it still 2012, or has it been upgraded?

    Thanks in advance!

    The versions of SSMS generally do not interfere with each other, and can co-exist fairly easily. There should be no need to uninstall either of the older versions of SSMS.

    There is an installer for just management studio, but I did not save the link for it. It is separate from Data Tools, which can also be downloaded pretty freely.
