SecureCRT Stops working when Visual Studio 2017 is installed


the other day I installed Microsoft Visual Studio 2017 and after that I realized that SecureCRT would no longer launch.

I deleted the data folder, and I would then get the passphrase window but when it comes to the program to start it just won't start.

Puzzled I decided to wipe my windows 10 which needed a reinstall anyway only to find out that SecureCRT just won't start if Visual Studio is installed (even with a fresh windows 2010 build).

I haven't tried uninstalling visual studio 2017 to see if that restores the ability of secureCrt to open but one thing I am now sure of is that the issue is related to the fact that Visual studio 2017 is installed.

Some component installed by visual studio (not sure which) is disrupting SecureCRT.

Has anybody experienced the same? Any advice?
