what could be wrong? i'm running Windows 7 Pro 64bit, have installed both VS2015 Pro and VS2017 Pro. both IDEs looks fine, i can code and compile with them.

other parts (WinForms, ASP.NET, WPF, etc...) installed without problems. the only problem is with VersionUtility. 

VS2017 is fresh installed, one week ago. VS2015 is older and have VersionUtility 2013.1 and 2016.1 installed.

thanks for any help!

    Hello Ppecek,

     I discussed the log file with the engineering service team and found the information that there is a known issue with installation of Version Utility on machines with Win 7 and VS2017.

    Regarding VS2015 , the issue is with VS2017, but it breaks the entire installation, so Version Utility will not get installed on any other versions of Visual Studio that are on the machine.

    I will make this case private and attach the development issue with it so that you will be notified when the service release is available.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
