Didn't work for me. However, there's a Channel 9 forum thread about it. Essentially, if you installed SQL Server Express first, then you may run into this problem. Uninstall SQL Server and Express, then re-install SQL Server, and it will also install the tools.

Go to "Add or Remove Programs". Select "Change" (NOT "Remove") on SQL Server 2005, and step by step remove all components over there. If you have installed more then one SQL servers, maybe we will need to intall Clients component again, and then repeat everything from the begining for the next server.
