Visual Studio Error

I figured out the issue, I went ahead and had to completely uninstall all parts of Visual Studio, and anything else surrounding it. Then I deleted the saved and intermediate files from my project. and followed this tutorial to install Visual Studio 2017. Best Video EVER for installing exactly, and only what you need. He summed it all up in 1 minute! Here’s the link. Setting up Visual Studio with Unreal Engine 4 on Windows 7 | - YouTube

My Visual studio (2015) was packaging projects fine with everything prior to 4.16.2. I updated to version 4.16.2 and now am getting an error:
UATHelper: Packaging (Windows (64-bit)): Program.Main: AutomationTool exiting with ExitCode=1 (Error_Unknown)

Google searching shows the error is something to do with how my Visual Studio is installed, but my question is whether or not it is an UE4 Error, since my version of Visual Studio worked just fine with all other versions of the Engine? And if it has now been changed, what is the proper sequence and proper total way to install Visual Studio to make it work right? This is a really tiresome issue…
