SSMS Installation Error – This version of SSMS cannot be installed because a xyz version of SSMS 17.0 was detected

September 23, 2017 Leave a comment

 
So, today I tried to install SSMS 17.3 version, and got following error:

This version of ssms cannot be installed because a release candidate version of ssms 17.0 was detected.


 
This is because if you had installed SSMS previously and uninstalled it and because of some files were not cleaned up properly, you will get this kind of message while installing SSMS separately.

 
–> The solution is to remove the previously installed SSMS related files from the respective version folder:

Go to following folder and remove all folders and files: C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\140\Tools\
 

Now try installing SSMS again and you won’t get any error !!!
