Found out that the patch that is included in that discussion is working fine for Visual Studio 2017 15.5.6, i think postgresql developer should include it on upstream branch or 9.6.x variant.
Thanks a lot Tom! @Thomas I haven't checked it out but as above mentioned, the patch is working fine so far, although i haven't check it thoroughly.
