How to install Microsoft SQL server management on MacOS M3.

Hello, for two days I’m trying to get Microsoft SQL management studio on MacBook with M3 processor. I was trying to do it with parellels, but it didn’t work. Is there any possibilities to get mssql on Mac excluding azure? I need Management studio for school.

    Hi @jack281

    As per Microsoft document,

    SSMS is available only as a 32-bit application for Windows. If you need a tool that runs on operating systems other than Windows, we recommend Azure Data Studio. Azure Data Studio is a cross-platform tool that runs on macOS, Linux, and Windows. For details, see Azure Data Studio.

    Thank you!

    For arm azure data studio is your only option

    as you have a m3 you could try hosting intel windows with

    it will be slower than parallels and not as integrated and more complex to setup.
