Where are SQL Server 2017 Shared Management Objects?

A few days ago I was searching within the SQL Server 2017 Feature Pack for Shared Management Objets (SMO).

I first checked SQL Server 2017 Feature Pack, but I could not find SMO there.

With a bit more searching, I found the official MS Docs article, which explains that beginning with SQL Server 2017, Shared Management Objects (SMO) are distributed as the Microsoft.SqlServer.SqlManagementObjects NuGet package to allow users to develop applications with SMO.

Therefore, any applications that use SMO need to take this change into consideration and be updated accordingly.
