Installing your Redgate tools on side by side versions of SSMS

You can run Redgate tools on side by side versions of SSMS on the same machine at the same time.

Many users like to run old versions of SSMS alongside the latest version so that they can compare old databases that may not be compatible with the latest version of the Redgate tool.


  • Uninstall the Redgate tool(s)
  • Install SSMS
  • Reinstall the latest version of Redgate tool(s)

You can download the latest versions from the customer portal.

You will also need to check that the tool version you're installing is supported by the versions of SSMS you are running.  You can find the requirements pages on the Redgate documentation site.

Note that when installing SQL Prompt across multiple versions of SSMS, the SQL Prompt version must be the same.
