VS 2017 is supported in 11.2.

11.1 supports VS 2015, but even previous versions that don't are very easy to patch to work with VS 2015 or earlier (not with 2017 though).

Personally, I consider the 2015 build tools the best choice, http://landinghub.visualstudio.com/visual-cpp-build-tools

  • they can be made to work with all Mathematica versions of the past few years with minimal hassle
  • these tools don't contain a GUI, which many people who just want a C or C++ compiler for Mathematica won't need
  • this version has good support for modern C++ features
