SSMS 18 fails to install RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    When trying to install SSMS 18 English version, the installation stops at once with "SSMS can only be upgraded by installing the package of the matching language".

    At the same time SSMS 17.9.1 English version is installed with no problem.

    How do i install SSMS 18?

  • My vote will be to keep same language for each module\component for SQL Server. Don't keep each one with separate language. If nothing works, then do clean up and  install with same language,. It will work like paneer\makhan.

  • Hi Dedmon,

    My OS language is US English and I am trying to install English version of SSMS.

    That is why i do not understand the source of the error where it is coming from.

  • Hi Dedmon,

    Same is the case for me as is for DikAlex. My OS language is US English and I am also trying to install English version of SSMS.
