I know this is a wrong forum, but cant get help around.
 
I install sqlexpress on vista and other windows 7 machine to test.
I cant open management studio as the server name is blank.
 
I tried to write the server name as machinename\SQLEXPRESS - it does not work.
This has been going on for two days now, I even install SQLTookkit!
 
Nothing is working.
 
Any suggestions?

Solution 1

You could try to connect to:
(local)
 
And if that doesn't work:
(local)\SqlExpress

may be Sqlserver Services are not turn on your server.., if you are using same PC try with "localhost" or IP address to connect the Database..
