no.top.post

My HP-mini-netbook with Win7 at
-> programs > programs & features
-> uninstall or change a program
shows: "47 programs installed" and it lists:
* Micros..Visual C++ 2008
Redistributable x86 9.0.307...
* Micros..Visual C++ 2005
Redistributable

I'd like to see what 'Visual C++' looks like.
How do I run this ?

I browsed the C: dir-tree but found nothing.
Also goog: "Visual C++" + Win7 doesn't help me.

== TIA

Visual C++ is a programming language, to run it, you need to buy it. What
you see in Programs and features are runtime libraries that allows your
Windows system to execute programs developped using Visual C++, so, to see
how the redistributable looks like, you need to run programs that uses
them.

You don't have o buy Visual C++. You can download and install the VS C++
Express edition that is free to use.

OK, why do they list mere libraries under "programs installed".
Perhaps the whole OS was made with Visual C++.
I'm interested in menu-driven apps.
And I've never seen eg. Visual basic, because I stopped using M$
when my ISP told me my Win3.1 was no longer good and I'd
have to buy W95.

What? Are you incapable of downloading free software and installing it?
If that's a problem for you, the I suggest that you leave C++ alone.
"I'd like to see what 'Visual C++' looks like."
A visit to your friendly bookstore or library might be in order, at
least to go beyond "Hi There!"
The original OP's post was unbelievable.

I am not a programmer so I wasn't aware there where free programming
languages by MS for Windows

You can't. Like the various versions of .NET, it's a set of
libraries used by application programs. Just as some application
programs use a particular version of .NET, some use a particular
version of C++ redistributable.
