Removing Multiples

Click for full size
Hi,

Hopefully this is the correct forum to ask...but are these all necessary? Or can I remove the older ones?

Thanks!

Particular software could be (likely are) tied to particular versions.
Much like the way .NET is too.

So in that respect, I'd just leave them.
(And update them should, when, MS puts out updates for them .)

Though I am kind of confused why you have 2008's in triplicate?

(I only have 2005's & 2010's. Seemingly that's all I've needed, so far.)

Thanks Rube,
That's what I figured, thought I'd ask before I fudge the hell out of it by uninstalling :P ...I'm assuming the duplicates you are speaking of are for 32 bit and 64 bit respectively

Exactly, the (x86) are 32 bit and the (x64) are 64 bit.

No, actually I was talking about the 2008's.

You are showing:

> 9.0.30729.17
> 9.0.30729.4148
> 9.0.30729.6161

Don't know if that is "normal", to be expected, or ?

Pretty sure it's normal. I've got a pile too. I just leave them be.
