We are cleaning up our hard disk and found VB 2008 no longer use and want to undelete.  Unfortunately, in the Uninstall window there are various VB 2008 lines.  Also it has installed and in use VB6, VB2005 and VB2010.

How can we correctly uninstall VB2008 without damaging the other VB lines (see pic)

You can safely uninstall the 2 Microsoft Windows SDK. They are only tools that you could have used when working with Visual Studio 2008. Because they were added separately after your first install on Visual Studio 2008, they were not uninstalled at the same time as Visual Basic.

However, leave everything that has C++ in it. C++ is another language and has nothing to do with Visual Basic. These were not installed with Visual Basic, but by other programs on your computer that need those files to work properly..

Understood; uninstall the 2 Microsoft Visual SDK.

What about the 5 Microsoft Visual C++ 2008 xxxx lines?

Leave the C++ there. They have nothing to do with Visual Basic. If you remove them, some applications won't work on your computer.

Understood.  Also I see that is almost 3 mb of space; no danger of waste space.

Thanx!
