After installing the Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package, I've noticed a lot of files in the root of my C:\ partition. I noticed these temporary files are erroneously generated by the installer into the root directory of one of your drives, instead of the temp directory. These files are unnecessary and can be safely deleted from the system. The functioning of the runtime library will not be affected by this. Its a known bug and is fixed in VS2008 SP1.
The following files can be removed:
install.exe install.res.1028.dll install.res.1031.dll install.res.1033.dll install.res.1036.dll install.res.1040.dll install.res.1041.dll install.res.1042.dll install.res.2052.dll install.res.3082.dll vcredist.bmp globdata.ini install.ini eula.1028.txt eula.1031.txt eula.1033.txt eula.1036.txt eula.1040.txt eula.1041.txt eula.1042.txt eula.2052.txt eula.3082.txt VC_RED.MSI VC_RED.cab
