Unable to start Microsoft SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access

I have installed SQL Server Migration Assistant for Access, but it will not start up. When I launch the program, it displays the splash screen and as it is displaying the message "Configuring Telemetry...", the program throws an exception. How can I resolve this? I have uninstalled and reinstalled the program a few times. I have AccessL and SQL Server running on my computer. I've also installed the Microsoft ODBC Driver 18 for SQL Server.

This is the error:

Exception: One or more errors occurred.
