I can't tell if you're suggesting removing all the fallbacks for when vcvars wasn't run (for example VSINSTALLDIR is not set). 

If you aren't then we still have to deal with those cases somehow.

If you are suggesting removing the fallbacks, that seems to change a long standing behavior of the scripts as I see those going back at least 6 years to VS8.

In either case, it seems like current cmake (3.14) uses the generator version as input to how at least some of the code paths choose a Visual Studio instance, so it's unclear to me that leaving the script using the 2017 generator while having both 2017 and 2019 installed will have the desired behavior.
