Visual C++ Redistributable multiply

I've got about a dozen versions of Visual C++ Redistributable on my system. Dating back to 2005, 2008, 2012, 2013, 2015, some even two versions per year.
Is it really necessarily to keep them all?
Or could U delete the older ones and keep the newest?

Hi Bernardus,

VB C++ are optional.
So the answer is yes, you can delete them all

They are only required by other programs you run, if after deleting them and a program needs it it will tell you, re-install as requested.
