I have tried to install RTC client 6.0.4 for visual studio 2017 15.3.4. Installation has finished successfully. But Team Concert menus are not shown in Visual Studio. I cant see Source control plugin listed under Tools->Options->Source Control.

I have a Visual Studio 2015 installed on same machine. RTC Client works properly with it. 
I have also tried to install RTC client 6.0.5M4 bur tesults are the same.

I have the same issue with the RTC Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE 6.0.4 in combination with Visual Studio 2017 Version 15.4.0 (I tried both the Community Edition and a trial of the Professional Edition). The plugin was installed through IBM Installation Manager.
Neither the Team Concert menu nor the Team Concert entry under Tools->Options-> Source Control is visible.

Are there any solutions to this issue? Or am I just forgetting to set some necessary options/properties?

I do have similar issues here with CLM 6.0.6. while installing VS client , the IM does not detect 2017 VS version , but it shows and enabled VS-2010. I dont know why, Again if i go ahead with VS-2010 (infact we should not), I cant see the RTC source control plugin option in tools-source control.

 After kicking my head trying to figure the Systems Requirements, 6.0.4 should apparently support VS 2017 so I would suggest to create a PMR with support.

I doubt that prior versions support it since they were released 2016.

 Is there a known solution for this or is there already a PMR for it?!

We just ran into this while upgrading our VS2017 Clients (15.4.x) from 6.0.3 to 6.0.4

Here it is a workaround mentioned in related task of this issue. I didn't try it yet.

We have the same problem and have found a workaround for this:

The InstallExtensionVS2017.bat has the problem (In  C:\Program Files (x86)\IBM\Rational Team Concert Client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE\bin)

This file doesn't find the VSIXInstaller. If you change following line

for /f "delims=" %%p in ('Setup.Configuration.CS.exe instances 15.0') do (


for /f "delims=" %%p in ('Setup.Configuration.CS.exe instances 15') do (

it is working.
