Too many C++ files?

Post by viking33 »

Ran across this in WIn 7 program files and wondered why there are so many C++ entries? Fifteen to be exact.
Can I get rid of most or all of them? Totally unfamiliar with these things.
:massachusetts: :usa:

If I agreed with you we'd both be wrong.

These libraries are needed by other programs. It's hard to tell which program needs which library, so unless you're running out of disk space, I'd leave them alone.

Otherwise, it'd be trial and error - uninstall a library and check if the programs that you use still run... :hairout:
Best wishes,
