Here is a question for your locked-down nerdies...

Can I delete all the 'old' versions of C++?

Is it worth it for probably only 200ish MB?

My SSD is quite full and it annoys me that they are all there...  lol:

I'm trying to remember why I installed it in the first place, some program demanded it...  rubschin:

At a hunch, there is still a registry entry for it so Windows thinks it's out of date and needs to be updated.  rubschin:
You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe

Yeah...there is.

Don't particularly want to dabble in the dark arts of RegEditry so will just ignore it.

Check the uninstall apps option, if it still shows in the app list because of the entry Windows may be able to get rid of it for you.
