I don't like the decision to remove the old VS project files, in my opinion
it's better to keep them, marked "not updated anymore".
I personnally use VS2013, and the reason I don't want to upgrade is the
fact that VS2017 requires online registration to work. I'm pretty sure some
users also have valid reasons to keep their old VS.
