If you're using Sql Server 2005 Express, and decide you want to "upgrade" to Sql Server 2008 Express, don't bother using the upgrade option in the installer. did, and it didn't seem to do anything useful. My SSME app wasn't upgraded, and as near as I could tell, nothing else was either. Take the shortcut of backying up your database(s) and uninstalling 2005 first. In fact, uninstall anything even remotely associated with SQL Server. I had 2005 parts, 2008 parts, and even 2012 parts (probably from installing VS2012). I uninstalled ALL of it, and reinstalled 2008 from scratch again. Of course, I was then confronted with almost 500mb of Windows updates, but that's okay (I guess).

Also, you can't use SSME from 2005 to manage a 2008 database.
