It is not clear to me why you need both VS2015 and VS2017 installed to have a bunch of compilers locally. VS2017 installer gives you the option of installing older compilers as additional toolkits. This give you additional Visual Studio 2015 Cross Tools Command Prompts and all. I don’t think this is supported for compilers from VS2012 and older, so in that case you need to install them separately.
