    With SSMS 2016 and 17, the SQL Search icon sometimes gets hidden and you need to expand the toolbar menu as below. Can you do a quick check to see if that might be the case?

    If not, can you kindly check the extension folder C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server\140\Tools\Binn\ManagementStudio\Extensions\SQLSearch and send across a screenshot of what's in there?

    Can I also just check- when you launch SSMS 17.6, does any log file get generated in %localappdata%\Red Gate\Logs\SQLSearch 3?
    Kind regards
