Though I've not tried it, it's supposed to work.

Where I've heard problems can occur is not so much the installations, but updates to the earlier installed version. (Also, not applicable for you but in general the higher version needs to be installed before the lower - i.e. 2019 after 2017 is OK, 2015 after 2017 not.)

But consider installing a VM for the other version.
- Sure more initial farting around,
- but there will be no chance of inter-version "effects" and "fun."
- also snapshots, easy clean up and roll back.
- clones, (i.e. a pre-vs clone) - next time around skip the windows [and prefs] install work
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!
