Using vs2017, wix 3.11rc and the vs2017 extension I am unable to create a shortcut as per

The error is "Cannot set column 'IconFile' with a null value because this is a required field." and
passing IconFile="" results in "The util:InternetShortcut/@IconFile attribute's value cannot be an
empty string. If a value is not required, simply remove the entire attribute.".

This was working in the most recent version for vs2015. I don't see anything in the issue
tracker, has anyone else seen this?
