Option to specify the SSMS 2016 Installation Path
The Installation of SSMS 2016 makes the Path Environment path very long. To get around it we would like to install it on a shorter path, but it looks like there is no option to specify the Installation Path like there was when SSMS was part of the SQL installation in SQL 2014.
This can be done with SSMS 18.
Please download the Preview 5 and validate if you are able to do this.
Also note that the install needs to happen via command line to install SSMS in a [non-C] folder.
For instance, for culture = en-us, the install would look like:
My SSD is pretty small and I need to install as much software as possible on a different drive. The ability to install SSMS on a different drive would be useful.
