When we shipped TFS 2017 and Visual Studio 2017, we didn’t provide a “Team Explorer” like solution. Historically our Team Explorer installer has been available for customers that want a rich client to access version control and some work item tracking features in TFS or VS Team Services. We didn’t release it because we needed to create a new version of it based on the new Visual Studio installer technology that was introduced in VS 2017 and we just didn’t have time to do that before we released. Along with the release of VS 2017.1 today, we are now releasing a Team Explorer installer.
Please let us know if you have any feedback.
