Failed to clone or open the repository

In Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise, I attempt to clone a repo. I enter the SSH URL and specify my local folder (to put the cloned code into). Clicking the Clone button, I get the error:

Failed to clone or open the repository 'UI’Email if you continue to have problems.

After the error, I go to my local folder and see that the operation has created the folders there but no code is in it.

If I go into a DOS window and do the clone from the command line using the same SSH URL, it works fine.

How can I get VS Enterprise configured to clone from the git repo?

Several posts suggest this is a VS bug. Make sure you have a recent update of VS2017. See this.
