eula.xxxx.txt + DLL files on my C drive ... orphans ?

My C: drive has several eula.xxxx.txt and install.res.xxxx.dll files on it (plus a few other file types)
- they look like orphans after an update by Microsoft.

Can I delete all of the files ... ?

This is the contents of install.ini file

ProductName.1031=Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable
ProductName.3082=Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable
The BMP file is blank and the "install.exe" starts with a wizard ... Microsoft as the "author"

I think they are left overs from an automatic Visual C++ update in recent months.

Can they be deleted ... thought it wise to check ... first.

Yes they can be safely deleted. It is due to a bug. See the article below:

Thanks Gator

The link to VCRedist from VC++ 2008 installs temporary files in root directory ... a perfect documented answer
