We have tested our existing PPK (libraries, components, sample code) for VS2015 with the Microsoft Visual Studio Professional 2017 Release Candidate Version 15.0.26206.0 D15REL and .NET Framework Version 4.6.01586 and everything worked fine. Our upcoming PPK 8.3 will also contain updated readme files considering VS2017.

Please contact us if you have any questions or feedback on VS 2017 migration: or use our support ticket system.
