I used to do a lot of .NET development but now it's mostly C++.

Just wondering…what type of work are
you performing using VS2017?
I've found VS 2017 to be great in accessibility, mostly
because it implements UIA rather than whatever Microsoft was
using when VS 2005 was around.
I'd argue that 2017 is the most accessible version yet. I use
it at work every day and it works really well with both JAWS
Why does updating Windows "break" things for you? I'd get
that sorted out if I were you; people really shouldn't be
using VS 2005 nowadays. Technology is so different from what
it used to be and I strongly recommend staying current,
especially with development tools. Things like the VC++
runtimes are updated with each new version of Visual Studio as
well, and many of these updates patch security holes that you
really don't want floating around.

I've read somewhere that Visual Studio
has a version that's fully accessible to JAWS. The version
I was told is fully accessible is Visual Studio 2005. The
problem is, I'm not sure where to get that one, especially
a copy that's clean and free of viruses, malware, adware,
spyware, and the like. I've tried the new version, but it
updates Windows, which breaks screenreader compatibility
on my machine. I've already had to restore it back to
working order by reimaging the hard drive three times
within 8 years! The first time, I formatted the wrong hard
drive by accident, and now I have to recover what I didn't
get the chance to back up on that hard drive. If I can't
get Visual Studio 2005, I wonder what programming
alternative I can use? Particularly I want to program my
own virtual instruments and audio software, as well as
software that lets customers write their own scripts for
ceremonies. The site where I read about the accessibility
of Visual Studio 2005 is here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/118984/how-can-you-program-if-youre-blind
