Unable to install DPM 2016

At the very beginning of installing Microsoft Data Protection Manager (DPM) 2016 on a Server 2016 server I receive the error shown in the screenshot, "An unexpected error occurred during the installation. For more details, check the DPM Setup error logs. ID: 4387."

The SQL 2016 server is installed on the same physical server where I am attempting to install DOM 2016. All Windows updates have been installed on this server.

I am following the steps in from the website http://msexchangeguru.com/2016/11/03/scdpm2016-deployment/ to install DPM.

The server where I have installed SQL 2016 and am installing DPM 2016 is a physical Server 2016 server that doesn't have any other roles or features installed on it besides SQL 2016.

What can I do to fix this issue so I will be able to successfully install DPM?

Attached are the DPM Setup logs from this server (below the screenshot).

Resolved this issue by uninstalling the latest version of SQL Management Studio, rebooting, and installing version 16.5.

"If you are using SQL 2016 please make sure you have not installed Management Studio 17.0 or higher, install 16.5."
