  • Hi db042190,

    Could you please tell us the version of your SSMS? 

    If your SSMS version is 18.0, it splashed screen and stopped. Would you please follow the steps below:
     
    Copy the File : Microsoft.VisualStudio.Shell.Interop.8.0.dll

    Located in
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18\Common7\IDE\PrivateAssemblies\Interop
     
    Paste in the Folder:
    C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Management Studio 18\Common7\IDE\

    Please refer to this similar thread.

    Hope this could help you.

    Best regards,
    Cathy Ji
