Hi 1 . You can install SSMS v17.x on a Windows 7 client 2.Yes, but you find the odd error pop up on bits only supported in 2016. Also seen issues "designing" tables via SSMS. Make sure you have the latest SP too. 3.Yes you can. "The 17.x generation of SSMS provides support for almost all feature areas on SQL Server 2008 through SQL Server 2017. "
