WITCustomControl ( can not support TFS 2017 Update1



I've installed latest of of WITCustomControl ( to populate the values that I have for custom control.

Error message is - Could not find a part of the path 'C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\15.0\MultiValueControl.wicc'.

I checked that the default installed location is C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Team Foundation\Work Item Tracking\Custom Controls\14.0\

I renamed folder 14.0 to 15.0 and got the following error :

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.TeamFoundation.WorkItemTracking.Controls, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

It seems stills reference the things which for TFS 2015.

The latest version works for the Web UI, however not from within VS2017.
Looking at the source code I don't see the references being updated to work for VS2017, so until that happens you will need to download the code, make the changes and compile it before you use it.
