    Microsoft Visual C++ is a integrated development environment (IDE) used to create Windows applications in the C, C++, and C++/CLI programming languages.
    Programs install the version they need, thus so many installs on your system. You might read this - Why Are There So Many “Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributables” Installed on My PC?

    To answer your other question, if a program asks to install it, do so... unless you know for a fact one of the installed versions already works with said program. And if the program asks to install and you click yes, you don't need to manually install. That's why the program asked to install.

    And those files don't take up a lot so space unless you're desperate to reclaim about 250 meg of storage space (about what mine is) so I wouldn't remove them.

    My two cents.
