SQL Server 2016 RC0–Management Studio install option has disappeared

If you are trying to install SQL Server 2016 RC0 – which I’m sure you are all doing looking at the new features that are coming our way soon and wondering how all this cloud stuff passed you by? You might be also be sat there wondering where has the option to install the client tools gone.


Where has the Management Studio install option gone?

Well the answer is simple. It now has a separate option in the SQL Server Installation centre


As you can see from the screen shot above, there are two option for installing the client tools. Install SQL Server Management Tools and Install SQL Server Data Tools.

It’s quite nice to see the client being separated from the server.
