    1. I had done this for VS 2017 Professional Edition.
      Can you please try adding one more line for Enterprise Edition while changing the version number like below with opening and closing tag and try?

      InstallationTarget Version=”[11.0,15.0]” Id=”Microsoft.VisualStudio.Enterprise”

      Thanks,
      Ajit
