SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS ) & NVidia NView

Background

Yesterday afternoon Rome reached out to me.

He said I am having problems using SQL Server Management Studio ( SSMS ).

 

Tried Thus Far

He said I have uninstalled earlier editions of SQL Server.

And, now only have the latest one.

When I launch the application as an Administrator, it works well.

But, when I launch normally, the application initiates, but quits right away.

 

Troubleshooting

  1. Remote Session
  2. Application Interoperability
  3. Hardware Drivers Update
  4. Application Monitoring

Remote Session

Five minutes later, we were on a Microsoft Teams meeting.

He shared his desktop.

I watched him repeat the steps he had so carefully explained to me earlier.

It was as he said he was.

When the application is launched in administrator mode, all is well.

Whereas, when the application is launched ordinarily, the application screen appears, yet, suddenly comes to an abrupt end.

 

Application Interoperability

I had him close all other applications, outside of current Microsoft Teams session.

Which ones were running:-

  1. Microsoft Outlook

Hardware Drivers Update

He launched Device Manager and attempted to update to update the NVidia Card Driver to the latest.

Told he was running the very latest.

 

Application Monitoring

Event Viewer

We checked Microsoft’s Window Event Viewer.

Hopefully, our errors are gently logged.

Personal Notes

Daniel,

Thank you so much for troubleshooting my PC issues with NVIEW.

I believe this has plague my PC for a couple of months with OUTLOOK and SSMS issues.

Sometimes it goes away and sometimes it requires an reinstall of  OFFICE EXCHANGE and just recently SSMS.

I deeply appreciate the time and effort you spent to help me resolve this issue.

Thank you again my family,

-Rome
