We are planning to upgrade out current Visual Studio 2012 (.NET 4.0 ) to Visual Studio 2017 + .Net 4.6.1 With Dev Ex 17 on latest version. Please help me giving reference where I can find the steps to complete this activity. If anyone is having step to step
guide to achieve that it will be very helpful.
We are also concerned about this issues once can face while doing this migration and how to avoid/resolve these issue.

Usually the decision to upgrade is based on wanting to integrate new features in later .NET versions to your application. Upgrading for the sake of upgrading is not a good reason to upgrade the framework, IMHO. You can certainly upgrade Visual Studio and
I believe going from 2012 to 2017 is pretty simple and you can just upgrade without really needing to do anything special.
Microsoft keeps "What new" docs so developers are aware of new features.
Also .NET API get deprecated as time goes on. You'll want to see if you using any deprecated APIs.
Basically, you'll need to do a bit of research and figure out the best direction. There are no step-by-step guides as every application is unique.
