I downloaded the SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe file and after installation I got something called SQL Server Import and Export Wizard. I was not expecting to get this. Should I have downloaded either SQLEXPR_x64_ENU.exe or SQLEXPR32_x86_ENU.exe
I only need SQL Server Express 2008 to use with ASP.Net... if that knowledge helps.
Thanks in advance!

Take the version with Advanced configuration please

I downloaded the version from your link. It still gives me the Import/Export Wizard. I just need a basic version of SQL Server Express. I don't really know what Import/Export Wizard is.

You can take this
from my link, if your OS is 64 bit or take the other one (x86) if your OS is 32 bit.

For some reason it still gives me this Import/Export Wizard with the SQL Server 2008 R2.

Did you set up the one with Advanced configuration? When did the wizard appear?

I did download the advanced version. It showed up after I installed it. But I guess I really don't need it now, because SQL Server Express 2008 comes with Visual Studio 2010. So, I just downloaded VS. But thanks for the help. I might need to download
this SQL Server in the future.

Apparently I was mistaken, I do have to download SQL Server Express. I wasn't aware the book puts the instructions to install it in the appendix. Unfortunately, I'm still having problems...
Step 4 was not included in the book, so I have no idea what to select
