Using Standard MSBuild Paths with Visual Studio 2017


For Visual Studio 2017, the first two paths with a Professional directory differ based on your edition of Visual Studio. As appropriate, you can replace Professional with Enterprise or Community. The Visual Studio Preview installation also changes the path based on Enterprise, Professional, or Community.
