    I’m looking into this issue.

    In the meanwhile, could you take a look at the SSMS setup logs (%TEMP%\SSMSSetup\SSMS-Setup-ENU_20190430231104.log). I’m interested in the lines in the range 133-216. Could you share those (tip: have a look at the lines and sanitize them, if you think they may contain sensible information?

    Also, if you could share the output of:
    reg query “HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio” /reg:32 /s

    And, finally, to unblock yourself:
    1) Make sure you don’t have any previous version (RC, Preview) of SSMS 18.0 installed (check Add/Remove programs; if you do, uninstall it)
    2) Make sure “C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18” does not exist (if it does, the delete it)
    3) Delete the mentioned registry key (e.g. by running from an elevated cmd prompt:
    reg DELETE “HKLM\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Microsoft\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio” /reg:32)
    4) Retry setup
    Please, let…

    tried 18.2 after reg and folders cleanup and reboot, still the same "side-by-side configuration is incorrect" error when launching.
    Running sxstrace shows Cannot resolve reference Automation,processorArchitecture="X86",type="win32",version="1.0.0.0" error with references to C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18\Common7\IDE\Automation.DLL file, etc.

    as someone below, i could not find such directory or file in my PC.
    Maybe, i can download it aside from somewhere?
    Or, what should i do to make it work finally?

    i did all the suggested manipulations, got SSMS re-installed, but still when launching it, i get
    "The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail."

    Tried with the latest version.

    the registry key deletion helped to install SSMS 18, but now, when launching it i have following error:

    The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.

    where do i see the log?
