Which Configuration Manager do I use??

Copper Contributor

I just installed SQL Server Management Studio V18.12.1 from this link:  Free Download for SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS) 18.12.1

When I try to install Configuration Manager from this page:


there is NO entry for the version of SSMS that I am running.

Also, note that SSMS is loaded onto my laptop, it is NOT running off a network server.

Any assistance would be appreciated.

When I try to connect I get this message: TITLE: Connect to Server ------------------------------ Cannot connect to MSI. ------------------------------ ADDITIONAL INFORMATION: A network-related or instance-specific error occurred while establishing a connection to SQL Server. The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections.
