I find that this issue is available in Visual Studio 2017 and other users are also facing the same kind of issue.
Error on "project properties" "References" page after fresh install - repeatable
this issue is still under investigation.
one user had mentioned that he installed the older version of Visual Studio 2015 and it solves this error in VS 2017.
so you can try to do the same. currently this is only the work around that I was able to find.
Visual Studio developers were looking in to the issue and they try to solve the issue soon.
I suggest you to post your feedback about this issue in the link I mentioned above.
so that VS developers will come to know that many users are affected by this issue.
