Get this error at doc generation (just bought this today!) at the setup wizard:

Have Visual Studio 2017 installed, I see the link is for the 2015 build tools. Is the 2017 ones not supported then?  I have not attempted to install this 2015 component yet with 2017 installed have no idea if it works, but should this be the course of action I take?

There should be no conflict of installing MSBuild 14 even with Visual Studio 2017. In fact I develop Bolt from 2017 myself. The build tools are not directly linked to the visual studio version.

Just proceed to the download URL that is indicated:
