    Previously I found that VS2015 has its own copy of node and npm that are interfering with standalone installed node.  Does VS2017 still do this? Had to hack Path environment variable before to fix this.

    The jQuery intellisense seems to stop working after you transpile, typing $. brings up nothing. Has anyone got this issue?

    To enable the intellisense to work I had to enable "typeAcquisition": {
    "enable": true, // Enable automatic fetching of type definitions for .js libraries

    You mentioned that "Transpile to Javascript" takes your ES6 and makes it ES5, but you didn't select any ES versions.  How do I pick which version of ES I want to use?
