Does Intel® Composer XE 2013 update 3 for Windows and Intel Software License Manager 2.12 has dependency on the below mentioned Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 redistributable?

That version is at least eight years old. Back when I was working for Intel, I created a document that mapped compiler to VS versions going way back. Unfortunately, the article has been truncated to go back only as far as the 18.0 version. (The article references compilers only, not license manager.)

What problem are you trying to solve? Note that the current 2021 version has no license manager because it is free.

Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 redistributable applications has become Obsolete/EOL and we have to uninstall those applications from our machine. Intel® Composer XE 2013 update 3 for Windows and Intel Software License Manager 2.12 are available in that machine. So we wanted to check the dependency of the above mentioned Intel applications on Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 redistributable.

 

Can you kindly about the Intel software license manager as well?

The Visual C++ Redistributables are required to run applications built based on those versions of Visual C++. The Intel compiler installation includes whatever Visual C++ pieces it needs, which might include the Redistributables. If you uninstall them, some of your applications (not just those compiled with Intel compilers) may stop running.

Just because Microsoft doesn't support them anymore, that doesn't mean they're safe to remove.
