    Run the installer as an administrator: Right-click on the SSMS installer and select "Run as administrator." This will ensure that the installation process has the necessary permissions to complete successfully.

    Download the installer again: It's possible that the downloaded installer file may be corrupted. Try downloading the SSMS installer again from here Microsoft site.

    Hi @杰 朱,

    Please have a check that if you have installed software like McAfee and other anti-malware in your machine.

    Temporarily disable any antivirus software and firewall, re-download for a try.

    Could you try to install SSMS 18 from here:

    download SQL Server Management Studio 18
