I want to download MS SQL Server 2008 with business intellegence standard edition. But I don't know how to download it, because the one I got was EXPRESS edition and everytime I run the x86 FULL 2008 server standard I downloaded, which is 1.3 GB in size, I cannot install it. It keeps telling me to run the setup.exe file but I can't find it.

MS SQL 2008 Standard is a retail product for purchase. Do you have Technet or Actionpack? If not, where are you downloading this from? Sounds like you are downloading the Express (free) version.
