11 Visual C++ installations in my system, is this normal?

I was playing with Your Uninstaller trying to find other problems and found 11 different version of Visual C++, here is the list:

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 x64
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x64 9.0.30729.4148
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x64 9.0.30729.6161
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 9.0.21022
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 9.0.30729.17
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 9.0.30729.4148
Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 x86 9.0.30729.6161
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x64 10.0.40219
Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 x86 10.0.40219

Is this normal??

That looks like another hit and miss by Microsoft, I think that it would be a common thing to have only 1 Visual C++ which would integrate and upgrade the older versions.
But what about Visual 2013, why you didn't mention it?

I believe v-s 2013 is a win-8 version,
I don't know what hit and miss means besides it's another windows update your missing,
Check for windows updates,
I believe I downloaded CorelDraw 7 and v-s 2012 was a requirement,
Cheers.

It is an application issue. Many are written for a specific version of the runtimes and will work with no other, even if it is newer. Separate x86 and x64 versions are necessary on a 64 bit OS. 32 and 64 bit applications must use the appropriate runtime package.

I gave up posting on MS forums long ago because of too many non sense scripts and not resolved issues.

The C++ 2012 download contains 3 files, could you please check and tell me which one I need?
Download Visual C++ Redistributable for Visual Studio 2012 Update 4 from Official Microsoft Download Center

C++ 2013 also for Windows 7 and 8.
Download Visual C++ Redistributable Packages for Visual Studio 2013 from Official Microsoft Download Center

You would need to download the files appropriate for the applications you have. x86 for 32 bit applications, x64 for 64 bit applications. You may need both. the _arm versions are for some tablets and other portable devices (not laptops).

Thanks now I understand but in my opinion it's still a hit and miss, I see that I got 2 of the same version: Microsoft Visual C++ 2005
Microsoft Visual C++ 2005

Anyway, not my business but just my opinion.
