Can I erase older versions of microsoft visual c + +


  • I have went from Windows Xp to Windows 7.  After the update and all other microsoft updtaes that the computer has done.  I noticed I have several programs runing that I think are the same.

           Micrsoft Visual C + +  2005 Redistributable, the same one over,

           Micrsoft Visual C + +  2008 Redistributable x86 9.03729.17 and the same but after the 9.03729.4148

           Micrsoft Visual C + +  2010 x86 Redistributable 10.0.30319

        my question is can I erase the prior ones to 2010.

  • You can erase them, but at the risk of dinging some application that depends on them. You shouldn't bother, not with TB disk drives that cost < $70.
