SQL Server Management Studio Unable to Start Correctly


I recently installed SQL Server Management Studio 18.5. I get an application error when I try to launch...

"The application was unable to start correctly (0xc000007b). Click OK to close the application."

I have downloaded the latest .Net Framework, Visual C++ Redistributable. I have also repaired, reinstalled severally and ran as administrator most of the time. I checked the ssms.exe.config in the installation folder. VS says the logpath and encrypt attributes are not allowed.

            <source name="UserSettings" switchName="SourceSwitch" switchType="System.Diagnostics.SourceSwitch" >
                    <add name="logFile" type="Microsoft.SqlServer.Diagnostics.STrace.LogFileTraceListener,&#xD;&#xA;                        Microsoft.SqlServer.Diagnostics.STrace, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89845dcd8080cc91"
                        logPath="%TEMP%\SSMS\" encrypt="false" >

This is the error I pulled from the post install log...
