Hereof, is Visual Basic the same as C++?
C++ is a “systems programming language” oriented to create infrastructure (operating systems, browsers, virtual machines, DBMSs, game engines, etc.) while Visual Basic was oriented to create end-user desktop applications (though you can do by far more with it).
Additionally, do I need all Microsoft Visual C++ versions? Microsoft Visual C++ Redistributable is a set of runtime library files used by many programs installed in the PC, even a part of Windows.
