I tried using SSMS CTP 2.2 but it doesn't work. Is there a newer version out there perhaps?

Ah - make sure you have SP1 of SQL 2014. I've heard people who haven't patched their SQL 2014 boxes don't have this available... ;)

I can confirm updating SQL 2014 to the latest SP indeed does the trick :D

Can we install just the SSMS 2016 CTP 2.3 bits ONLY?

SQL_SSMS.MSI in the x64 setup folder?

Or use the whole installer and choose only Management tools?

You can download just SSMS 2016. I don't have SQL 2016 on my main machine, just SSMS.

Matan Yungman wrote a little utility last year for SQL Server 2014 and may be useful for those people who do not have SSMS 2016. Does the same kind of thing!
