    Hi bangu00 ,

    >what is package showing under c:\windows\assemblty\

    C:\WIndows\Assembly folder is the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) used by . NET Run time. Generally, it is advisable to use the . NET command gacutil ( to manage the contents of this folder.

    > my system not listed any one the packages under c:\windows\assemblty\

    Not clear what your issue is, but it seems SMO = "Server Management Objects" isn't installed. You can get it from related SQL Server Feature Pack, e.g. from
    Microsoft® SQL Server® 2016 Service Pack 2 Feature Pack => SharedManagementObjects.msi
