Where is the Visual Studio 2017 MSBuild.exe?

If you have installed Visual Studio 2017 and need to use the latest MSBuild.exe CLI you may have discovered that it is no longer installed in %programfiles(x86)%\MSBuild\15.0\Bin\msbuild.exe

MSBuild.exe can now be found in %programfiles(x86)%\Microsoft Visual Studio\2017\<version_name>\MSBuild\15.0\Bin\msbuild.exe

Note that the <version_name> [Community|Professional|Enterprise] is now part of the path above.
