I'm in the process of setting up the package manager and went to install the SSMS add-in. The installer layout is all messed up and I can't get past the first step of the install. Has anyone else seen this?

Hi there -

It looks like the add-in installer is failing to detect a version of SSMS installed on this machine.

Can I ask which version of SSMS is installed on the machine you are trying to install the add-in on?

I have only installed Deployment Manager thus far. I got it up and running and went to the Tools tab and downloaded the SSMS add-in. Attempting to run that installer is what produced the error above. Do I need to install something else?

Hi there

The SSMS add-in is an add-in for Microsoft's SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) that helps you package your databases for deployment using Deployment Manager.

It's not an add-in for Deployment Manager.

You should install the SSMS add-in on the same machine that you use SSMS for database development. The installer should then detect the available version of SSMS and install correctly.

Hope this helps
