Sql Server Management Studio Won't Install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello peepz, I've been trying to install the SSMS for some time now to no avail. I've tried everything from opening the installer to using the command line and it'll only just get to the User Account Control permission to let app install stage and then nothing happens. No prompts or anything. I used the command line

    SSMS-Setup-ENU.exe /log %temp%\layout.log /layout %temp%\layout

    to get a log of what happens when I try to install and it showed the following:

    My windows is version 1903 (OS Build 18362.959).

    The SSMS version I'm trying to install is 18.6.

    Many Thanks,

    Doyin Dimeji.

  • Hi doyin_dimeji,

    1) Make sure you don’t have any previous version (RC, Preview) of SSMS 18.0 installed (check Add/Remove programs; if you do, uninstall it)
    2) Make sure “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18” does not exist (if it does, the delete it)
    3) Delete the registry key (e.g. by running from an elevated cmd prompt:
    reg DELETE “HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio” /reg:32)
    4) Download SSMS 18.6 again from here
    5) Retry setup and run it as administrator( Right click SSMS setup>Run as administrator)

    Best regards,
    Cathy

  • Sorry I haven't replied since. Thanks for answering my question.
    Here are the results of the aforementioned steps you outlined:

    1) There was no previous installation of SSMS of any version.

    2) There was no directory as such

    3) The command returned ERROR: The system was unable to find the specified registry key or value.

    4) Did as you said

    5) Did this and still did not get past the User Account Control permission phase.

    Many Thanks.

  • Hi doyin_dimeji,

    Try to reboot your computer if possible. Suggest you try to install the SSMS 18.6  through UI again. Run the setup file as administrator. Share us the screenshot when the SSMS failed.

  • Hello Carthy, I did as you said but it's not still installing. It just shows nothing after granting it UAC permission to run the installer. Like the launcher doesn't even launch. I don't know what else to do at this point. Thanks for replying though. Just hope this issue can finally be resolved so I can get back to development. Many Thanks, Dimeji.

  • Hello Carthy, didn't hear from you again.

    What would you suggest to be my next move?
