vs2015 to vs2017 Transition

We are formally deprecating vs2015 in two weeks on 2020-04-07 and will move to vs2017. This change will enable us to support the usage of msbuild on Azure for the win platform and will provide additional support for C++. Most packages built with vs2015 can be linked with vs2017 toolchain (but not vice-versa). An exception is static libraries compiled with whole program optimization (/GL flag) which may be incompatible with the vs2017 toolchain. These static libraries will need to be rebuilt using vs2017.
