According to one comment in the reviews here: (

" For Visual Studio 2017 "support": 1. Download the extension (ImageWatch.vsix) and open it using WinRAR 2. From inside the bundle, open "extension.vsixmanifest" (using Notepad/Visual Studio, or any XML editor) 3. Edit line number 11 to match: "<installationtarget id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.Community" version="[15.0]"/>" 4. Edit line number 15 to match: "<dependency id="Microsoft.VisualStudio.MPF.15.0" displayname="Visual Studio MPF 15.0" version="[15.0]"/>" 5. Save the file and update it in the archive (select Yes in WinRAR dialog) 6. Install the extension (it will complain that it might not be compatible, but it works)"

I seem to be able to install it, however, I'
