Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio v18 detection

Hi, I see you only support the update of "Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio" only in English.

Some of our User have installed the SQL Management Studio in other Languages for example in German.

Your update installation fails when a other language is installed.


Can you change the detection rule only for english installations?

Error: [1490:0954][2019-12-09T14:23:28]i000: MainViewModel.AddFailedCondition: Error: SSMS can only be upgraded by installing the package of the matching language. Please, use the matching version of the installer, or uninstall the current version of SSMS and run SSMS setup again.


Detection Regvalue:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio\18\Language      "1033”=”1”

    Hello, thanks for the information, today we have added the French update for this application and updated the existing update's rules for the English version. We'll evaluate other languages in the future. Keeping this as planned until we finish that evaluation.
