Per the above article Gen 8.6 Complete PTF WKS86200/SO09618 should be installed to provide the VS 2017 support.
The VS 2017 support was originally delivered with a series of *861* PTFs but WKS86200 supersedes them. WKS86200 is also the baseline for all new 8.6 PTFs, so it should be installed as a matter of course, to be able to install any later PTFs.
