http://serverfault.com – I've installed SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition in my Win 7 notebook. The Express Edition doesn't have SQL Profiler enabled. Thus it's hard for me to debug my SQL 2005 applications. I have a license for SQL Server 2005 (32 bit) and when I tried to install the client tools it gave a "known compatibility" error message. Is it possible to install the 2005 client tools (for 32 bit) only in the same machine? I have SQL Server 2008R2 Express Edition, Windows 7, and Visual Studio 2010. (HowTos)
