New training course: Customizing SQL Prompt. Watch now.

Can I install SQL Prompt in SSMS 17 & 18?

I've had Prompt installed for a while.  I just installed SSMS 18.

SQL Prompt is not installed on 18, and I can't seem to get anything to install.  If I download, it says SQL Prompt is already installed.

What am I missing?  Do I have to uninstall it and reinstall?

    Hi @gebhartj

    Yes, unfortunately in order to get Prompt to appear in your new version of SSMS you'll need to do an uninstall and reinstall. After that, it should be available in all your SSMS versions.

    Hope this helps.
