SQL Server ManagementStudio 17: The application cannot start

Nov 4 2019 1:30 AM

After reinstalling the Visual Studio Professional 2017, since then I used to get the error message as The application cannot start, while opening the Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 17

I had repaired and reinstalled but still the problem exist.

 
 

Is there any way to work around to fix this issue?
