    Question Clean up Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable applications

    I have accumulated 7 Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable applications.
    2 2008, 2 2010, 1 2012, 2 2013.

    I don't program and would like to cleanup these files, but I wonder if any programs use them?

    I run Windows 7 Professional 64bit.
    Some of the C++ are x64 and x86.

    I tried to find the files and they don't seem to exist. They are referenced in the Registry.

    Programs that require these different packages to run, install them. If you remove some - you may have to reinstall the software or even the OS.

    I suggest you keep them.

    It is recommended to keep the files.
