Thanks for the branch cumulative comment on each version if you have more than one version (excluding x86/x64 versions).

You're welcome.

Thanks for the info keloo05.

I went ahead and removed what you mentioned and haven't had any problems.

I am still searching for a way to know which program uses which version of c++.

If you know how, please let me know.

I could tell if I would see a list of all you installed programs, but believe me it doesn't worth the trouble, because in every 90-99% cases you would have to install all 3 branches of VC++ runtimes.

Probably, if it was a fresh install.

What if the following occurs?
1. windows update.
2. if a new software installation uses a version of c++ that was installed previously.
3. a re-installation of the software that is dependent upon c++.

2 & 3. if the VC++ version that is packed with the program you are installing is the same version as the one you are having it will skip installing or overwrite, but if it's a lower or higher version, it will be installed.
