Erlang installer: vcredist_x64.exe version determination

I’m in the process of building an installer for my app which uses (Elixir) Releases. I want to bundle and install the vcredist_x64.exe along with my app. I found the crazy/genius method of determining the required version in the OTP source. Do I understand correctly that it determines the version of C++ build tools that the whoever is building has installed on their machine?

I feel like I can bypass the complexity of determining the version as long as I supply a VS2019 C++ redistributable? Because the build instructions for Windows ask for VS2019.
