The 2012 Management Studio Download can be found in Microsoft’s Download Center. You won’t see the download option unless you click on the ‘Download’ button, then you’ll be presented with a bunch of files to select. One of which is the SQL Server Management Studio 2012 64bit download file. It’s like 3 clicks. Nothin really.
Here’s the link for quick reference: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=29062
1. Click ‘Download’.
2. Find the ‘SQLManagementStudio_x64_ENU.exe’. file, and Click ‘Next’.
3. If the download doesn’t start of course; you can always select the ‘Click here’ link. That’s pretty much it.
