Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Enterprise Edition and Express Edition are not the same thing. Enterprise Edition will not install on a workstation OS – Express Edition will. Likely that is what your friend has installed, and likely what you intended to install since your named instance was SQLEXPRESS.
