  • Hi M rami,

    Welcome to the MSDN forum.

    It seems you meet the SQL Server Management Studio installation issues and please check the SSMS installation tips as below:

    1. Make sure you are running an up-to-date version of the Visual C++ 2013 Redistributable Package. Version 12.0.40649.5 (or greater) is required. Only the x64 version is needed.
    2. Verify the version of .NET Framework on the computer is 4.6.1 (or greater).
    3. Close any other instances of Visual Studio that are open on the computer.
    4. Make sure all the latest OS updates are installed on the computer.
    5. The noted actions are typically required only once. There are few cases where a reboot is required during additional upgrades to the same major version of SSMS. For minor upgrades, all the pre-requirements for SSMS are already be installed on the computer.

    If this issue persists, refer to the ‘Get Help’ section of the above document, please redirect to this appropriate forum: Setup and Upgrade - MSDN Forum to start a new thread for a better support, thank you for your understanding.
