Installing Management Studio for SQL Server Express 2008 R2

I came across an issue trying to install SQL Server Management Studio on a computer with SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition. The installation program started fine but could not find any additional features to install.

The work-around is to choose New Instance during the installation. Everything runs smoothly after that. Happy coding!
