One thing that frustrates me is how difficult organisations can make finding and downloading software from their site. Microsoft and its ‘download centre’ is a classic example of this, just the other day I tried to find the SQL server express 2014 management tools, it took an age to find and there was many files and no descriptions or primary file recommendations. I’ve now put together a list below with descriptions and links, mostly for my sanity! But if helps you great!
SQL Server Express 2014
If your looking for the Express version with the management tools then these are your links:
