Update Team Foundation Server MSSCCI to use VS2017 instead of VS2013
In our job we still develop using Visual Studio 2008. As we plan to upgrade our TFS server from 2012 to 2017, we need to change the SourceCode plugin to MSSCCI. Installing it requires to install also Team Explorer 2013 (and VS2013 update 5) as prerequisites. We should be able to bypass this requirements as we have VS2017 installed.
Please take a couple of days to update this component.
Thank you for your feedback on this idea. Unfortunately, we do not plan to update the MSSCCI provider to support VS 2017 without having Team Explorer 2013 installed. VS vNext is the next version for which we will evaluate MSSCCI support.

This looks like it should be merged with https://visualstudio.uservoice.com/forums/121579-visual-studio-ide/suggestions/11195841-update-the-msscci-provider-to-support-visual-studi
That way it will get a higher vote count

At a minimum could the process of getting this to work be clearly documented in a web link.
Searching for help on how to get MSSCCI working on VS2017 find plenty of hits, with lots of suggestion and lots of comments in those suggestions saying these suggestions don't work.
Failing that just come out and say MSSCCI is no longer supported, which as it stands, as appears to be the unofficial position.
