Hi Everyone!

 

I'm having a tough time installing SSMS properly. Apparently the software did not install successfully in the first place and since then I've been trying to repair it or completely uninstall it so that I can reinstall it. The problem is that there is some stubborn file or service that is not uninstalling and is causing problems.

 

I have tried several times, cleaned temp files, restarted, checked registries and everything. Nothing seems to work.

 

Can anyone suggest a reliable course of action?

Hi @ShauryaSinghChauhan -- Can you please post the contents of the setup error log?  Take care.

Hi @bake13...the registry mentioned in the error did not have Administrators assigned as its owner...the issue was resolved after I did that...
Thanks for reaching out though...
