When im trying to launch SSMS-Setup-ENU.exe file nothing happens.
I can see the process starting and then disappear:

Untitled

I read in some forums that for some people it worked if they moved the file to the desktop before running it as a administrator, but that made no difference for me.

This machine is just a few months old and is running windows 10.
Windows is up to date.

Please help me.

    Hi @Johan Karlsson,

    Please first make sure that you have downloaded SSMS from official web as shown below.

    https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/ssms/download-sql-server-management-studio-ssms?view=sql-server-ver16

    Secondly, it is not suggested to run the setup on one-driver folder.

    At last, if this do not work, please re-start your machine and re-run the setup for a try.

    Regards,

    Please check the SSMS system requirement.

    Try below methods to remove the temps and re-install SSMS.

    • remove temp files from %temp% folder (C:\Users<user name>\AppData\Local\Temp)

    open the register and remove "HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio" or execute via cmd (with admin rights):
