    Hi @Liew Vun Chang ,

    Ensure run the installer as administrator, temporarily disable firewall and retry the download

    Try to run from an elevated cmd prompt:

    reg DELETE “HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio” /reg:32  

    For detail, you can look at this related thread:

    on what kind of server/workstation are you trying to install SSMS?

    Did you use an account with administrations permission for installation?
