    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…

    I removed v18 and installed v17.9.1 and it seems working ok so far.

    Haven't got the time but will try the option of installing latest hotfixes, if/when it's confirmed to be the fix for v18.

    Thanks, Daniel

    Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 14.0.17289.0
    Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.30319.42000
    Operating System 6.3.16299

    I installed SSMS 18 on my Win 10 laptop and ran it successfully yesterday but unable to start it anymore today. No error message, nothing is showing. Tried reinstall/repair but didn't help.

    Any idea?
