Steps to upgrade to SSMS 18 then SQL Prompt 10 etc

I have SSMS 2014, and received notification that SQL Prompt 10 will drop support for that version.  So I need to upgrade to SSMS 18.  
Can someone provide the correct steps to getting SQL Prompt to register itself with SSMS.  
Do I uninstall SQL Prompt first, install SSMS 18, then re-install SQL Prompt?

Thanks!

    Hi @KMHaynes

    Yes, in order to get Prompt to appear in SSMS 18, you'll need to do an uninstall and then reinstall it after you've installed the new version of SSMS.

    OK, thx TomW!

    Follow-up:  My office has a license for the whole SQL Developer Suite (Data Compare 14, Dependence Tracker 3, Prompt 10, etc.), but as far as I can tell I am using only SQL Prompt 10 (and maybe Data Compare??) .  So do I need to uninstall ONLY SQL Prompt 10, and reinstall it?  OR do I need uninstall ALL Redgate products in the suite and re-install?

    Windows 10 "Apps & Features" only shows file sizes on Data Compare 11 and Prompt 10.  See pic below.

    Thanks!

    Hi @KMHaynes

    Any tools that act as plugins for SSMS (eg. Prompt) will need a reinstall in order for them to appear in SSMS 18. The tools that are standalone apps won't need reinstalling.

    I hope this helps.
