Windows 7: Are several Visual C++ versions needed?

Are several Visual C++ versions needed?

My "Programs & Features" list shows several "Microsoft Visual C++ 20xx Redistributable" that are different version numbers.

Will it be safe to delete just the lowest version numbers and keep only V10.0.30319?

Thanks.

No, please keep them all. Different versions are used to create different apps, so if you delete the older ones you may suddenly find some of your apps have stopped working.

i would say to keep them all.

different software needs different libraries to function correctly.
