I need to downgrade to VS2017 because of issues in VS2019. Where can I download VS2017 for mac?

The download button on this page:

redirects me here:

But it gives me the VS2019 installer instead, the downloaded file name also doesn't match the file name displayed when you tap info.

I have also searched this forum but each link I tried ends up here:

Microsoft support:

Clicking the "Installation chat" link brings me here:

Clicking the "Visual Studio 2017 for Mac" under Technical Support and going through the forms brings me here:

I have an Enterprise subscription so I won't pay an extra $499,- to get a download link for VS2017. There used to be a simple and proper download page on xamarin.com where you could simply select any version, where did it go?

    Probably because just about everything is broken in VS2019, but that's not really the question here.

    Anyway, I am on version 8.2.2 (which I have just uninstalled), Previous versions 8.0.... Are supposed to work better, So I will give that a try first.
