We installed SQL Server Management Studio 2018 (v18 GA) on a Server 2012. The SSMS program presents the splash screen then closes immediately. After reviewing the logs, there isn't any entry in the Event Viewer; I suspect that it's closing cleanly, but I don't know why. I attempted to run the repair on the following packages from other research: Visual C++ 2017 Redistributable (x86/x64) - 14.16.27029. I repaired both and the SSMS package using the installer, but the same issue occurs. Anyone have any recommendations?
This has come up on DBA Stack Exchange which seems to solve the problem:
