SQL Server Express Vista

Lost a few min tonight with a SQL Server Express installation – wasn’t able to create databases even though I was logged in as the administrator.  MSDN forums were down, so it took me a bit to find the answer here, and it’s pretty simple: You need to run the Management Studio as administrator – you right click it and “Run as Administrator.”  A trick you have to use for quite a few vista problems.
