Many different Microsoft Visual C++ programs, can i delete some?

basically, this.



should i delete all of the older ones and ones for x86 systems, or are they on my computer for a reason? my first thought was just to keep the newest x64 one (the fifth one) but i wasn't sure if the others ones are there for a reason. are they?

DO NOT DELETE THOSE PROGRAMS

unless you made them yourself.

I'm guessing you know C++ and have Visual C++ to program, write, whatever. So do I. As for those programs I don't know what to do with them. If they came with the program, they are probably some basic systems that keep it running.

nope, i don't know c++ at all. they were just... on my computer. no clue what program they would be for, honestly, i don't think any programs on my computer rely on them. however, i shall leave them be.

Additionally, if you have a 64-bit version of Windows, you'll want to make sure you have both 32-bit and 64-bit versions installed, since native 64-bit versions will require the 64-bit runtimes.
okay thanks man, that helps out a lot.

Where did you find those, I'd guess systems something or another. Since you're running Word you'll have a lot of files that work using C++

I've been trying out C++ recently and still have no idea what I'm doing so. . .
