Power BI Desktop External Tools Not Opening

Gilbert Quevauvilliers ran into a problem:

I recently got a new laptop and I had to install all my programs again. Everything was going as expected, except when I went to use ALM Toolkit, the program would not open.

I would click on ALM Toolkit, I would see it open for a few seconds in task manager and then it would disappear.

That led me down a few rabbit holes, I thought could it be Windows Defender, could it be the anti-virus or could it be installed incorrectly.

It turns out that neither of those was the problem. Read on to learn what the issue was and how Gilbert corrected it.
