I'm retired now but when I was working, we had multiple VS20xx versions running on the same computer. Crucial to the process is not having any of the Visual Studio symbols pre-defined in your environment. Each version of the IDE should be activated from a DOS window/command line that is found in the menu tree for each compiler. Clever users (this would be you) can look at the contents of each menu item and cook up the same thing yourself and make them desktop shortcuts with your own local/personal modifications.

I haven't used VS2017 or VS2019 but I would assume that the same trick will still work.

P.S. Make absolutely sure that all remnants of any and all compilers do not exist in your environment before starting this. Type 'msdev' (or whatever it is now) at the command line and make sure it gives an error. Likewise, start from a menu item selection and verify that it gives an error.
I'm retired. There's a nap for that...
