My group still uses VS2008 as our primary development tool. I would like to update to VS2017, or possibly VS2019. A change like that would require full regression testing at all levels in a code base somewhere around 3 million lines of C# and C++. That kind of test, even with parts of it performed in parallel to the upgrade process, would add weeks if not months to our schedule.

I'll freely admit that the volume of complaints of crashes and other bad behavior as compared to the lukewarm descriptions of new and enhanced features do not inspire me to push my PHB's to have us upgrade.
