SQL Server 2005 Management studio missing after New Installation

Hey all...

I wannu blog this for a long time... I have faced this problem many times after installation. I have installed SQL Server 2005 Enterprise edition on Windows 2003 Server and SQL Server 2005 Developer edition on Windows XP professional edition.
In both the cases when I installed SQL server 2005, SQL Server Management Studio was missing after successful installation. The simple solution is you need to uninstall it and reinstall the setup again. When I goggled for it many of them suggest the same solution, still wondering what could be the cause? Any ways it works now :)

Note: Remember to delete all the left over folders after uninstalling the software before re-installation.

Rename the following folder

C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\90

and reinstall all SQL components again. Above folder is created while installing VS 2005 and it refers to SQL express. That causes all these problems.

Hope it helps....
