Dup Install of VC++ Express 2005??

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if someone who has installed Visual C++ Express 2005 off of Microsoft's site can tell me if it is normal to have both: Microsoft MSDN 2005 Express Edition - ENU and Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Express Edition - ENU Both listed as 681.00MB installs. It seems I have installed the same thing twice? Here is a screenshot of my "Add / Remove Programs" screen, showing what appear to be duplicate installs.

That's just a quirk of the installer. MSDN Express and Visual C++ Express are not the same thing or the same size. The installer just simply registered the same size for both. You can ignore that.

I noticed the same thing for Python libraries, which are installed through the regular Windows setup to the shared Python24\Lib\site-packages directory.
I suppose the installer equates the size of the target directory of the installation with the size of the installed package, including alredy existing files in the tally.
