My First SQL 2016 Management Studio Update

I opened my local SSMS today and found my first notification of an update to SQL 2016 Management Studio today. Here is what it looks like:

When you click on update it takes you to MSDN to download the update.

Apparently this one is a hotfix. Note that you do not have to download the update and if you have SSMS set to automatically check for updates you will get this notification every time you open SSMS.

I closed SSMS and installed….

No reboot was required and I could use SSMS immediately after the install was complete. The install took only a few minutes. The download took several minutes but was not an issue.

Hope your SSMS update goes well!! Let us know if you encounter issues and any solutions you may have!
