    Microsoft Visual C++

    Greetings,

    How many different copies of MS visual C++ do I need on my Win 7 system? I have 16 visual C++ on my machine. The files range in date of 4/16/10 to 1/16/2011. Are there any I can delete or do I need all for system to function at full capacity?

    Respectfully

    Welcome to the Lounge as a new poster.

    Unfortunately these distributions are installed by different S/W apps. Each app may need a slightly different version to run appropriately. If you delete any of these, keep your installer packages at hand because deleting them may break your apps and the only alternative will be to reinstall the app.
