Messed up installer for SQL Server Management Studio add-in?

I'm in the process of setting up the package manager and went to install the SSMS add-in. The installer layout is all messed up and I can't get past the first step of the install. Has anyone else seen this?



  • Hi there -

    It looks like the add-in installer is failing to detect a version of SSMS installed on this machine.

    Can I ask which version of SSMS is installed on the machine you are trying to install the add-in on?

  • I have only installed Deployment Manager thus far. I got it up and running and went to the Tools tab and downloaded the SSMS add-in. Attempting to run that installer is what produced the error above. Do I need to install something else?
  • Hi there

    The SSMS add-in is an add-in for Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) that helps you package your databases for deployment using Deployment Manager.

    It's not an add-in for Deployment Manager.

    You should install the SSMS add-in on the same machine that you use SSMS for database development. The installer should then detect the available version of SSMS and install correctly.

    Hope this helps
