I did a major cleanup on my Windows lately, removing old software which saw little use. Some of them may or may have not installed their own Visual C++ redistribution. I know removing the redists doesn't seem to make sense, but just in case I still want to remove it, is there a way to check for which program depends on certain redist?
Windows does not, there is the expectation that applications clean up after themselves. Unfortunatly this is not the typical action for installataions.
