    Do I really need...

    Seven versions of C++, five of which are various incarnations of the 2008 version?

    All of these were created by various programs I have installed. Isn't C++ backwardly compatible? Can I uninstall them?

    Thanks in advance.

    Sometimes a program will require a specific version of the C++ runtimes. It is very difficult to say discover which version is being used by some application program. Should you decide to uninstall one or more, I recommend you have the install package available in case you need it or know where you can get the install package.
