It all makes sense in my mind. Until VS2019 goes RTM it's not recognised,
unless you specifically ask for it. This means up till that moment, all
default builds will use the latest RTM, which is VS2017. From a corporate
perspective this makes a lot of sense, nobody wants accidents. I've said
this before, until it [VS2019] goes RTM it's as a matter of principle

So have I jumped the gun by prematurely installing the preview?

Yes and no, I would say.
