SSMS ecosystem

Redistributing the framework

You are free to redistribute the EXE installer or MSI within your own installer.

The EXE installer cannot be run in silent mode but is preferred because:

  • It copies the MSI to a safe location so so the installation can be repaired.
  • Installs some microsoft redists that are sometimes required for SSMS 2005.
