    404. That’s an error.

    The requested URL was not found on this server. That’s all we know.

    Use imgur.com or imgbb.com

    The MS C++ runtime DLLs are not backwards compatible, which is why you need all these different versions. Meaning that if a program uses the 2012 version, having the 2017 version installed doesn't help. Only the 2012 version can work with that program.

    So yes. Perfectly normal to see all versions installed.

    Different versions, different ABIs so they are not backward compatible. Only 2015 and 2017 runtimes have the same ABIs (and probably this is not gonna happen in the upcoming 2019 version), so for those you only need the latest.

    Just seems you have some duplicates of the 2005 and 2008 versions.

    Here is my list:

    I think you can safely remove the oldest versions of the duplicates.

    Older VC runtime installers did not overwrite previous builds of the same versions. Anyway it's fine, the OS will use the last version.
