SAP Tools for MS SQL Server now part of SWPM

The SAP Tools for MS SQL Server (STM) used to be a separate download from the msplatforms space on the SAP Software Marketplace.

For more information about the STM, see SAP Note 683447 (Login required)

With the recent release of the SAP Software Provisioning Manager (SWPM), the STM are now part of the Generic Installation Options of SWPM. See SAP Note 1680045 (Login required)

The SWPM itself is part of the SL Toolset and is updated regularly. Always download the latest version of SWPM. I will publish a separate blog about the SWPM shortly.
