How do I install the SQL Server Management Studio from my visual studio 2008 cause it is not there. I believe I need to install it. Can't find it in my computer. Do we need another installer for that?

I understand that, but if you don't work a little to configure the server, the connection won't happen by itself. The picture I uploaded is from my computer where I have SQL Server2008R2, but the structure is the same for SQLServer 2005. Find SQL Server Management Studio(or ssms.exe) and let's configure the server.

Of you want the correct connection string just use a sqldatasource control and set it's datasource it will generate a connection string in the setup and you can copy and paste that.
