MSTest Runner gives "Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation"

I am using Windows Server 2012 R2, bamboo as windows service with administrator account. MSTest Runner was working fine (with .NET 4.7) until the latest Visual Studio 2017 update 15.8.3 on the server to support .NET 4.7.2. 

Does anyone know how to fix the error? I can run tests successfully from Visual Studio 2017 IDE in the same server.

Error from MSTest.exe logs:

I started using VSTest.Console.exe instead of MSTest.exe. 

I no longer use MSTest Runner task on bamboo server. I replaced it with two tasks: command task to execute VSTest.Console.exe executable and then MSTest Parser task to parse trx test results file.

Ok:)

Is this bamboo agent or server ?
