SSMS Setup Fail error (0x8007046) RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I recently formatted my windows and reinstalled VS Community 2017, then SQL Server 2017 Express.. then attempted to install Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio - that fails with Fatal error (0x8007046). I have read up a lot on this and did much trial and error but can't fix it.  It seems to be the problem with the Visual Studio 2015 Shell (isolated) installation - trying to repair that fails:   "A setup package is either missing or damaged".

    If you say skip that and continue, setup fails.  The components that fail:

    Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable x64 and x86 14.0.23026

    .NET Framework 4.5.1 and 4.5 and 4 Multi Targeting Pack.
