W7 winsxs


Recommended Posts

Högerklicka på mappen och titta på egenskaper så ser du hur mycket plats den tar. På min dator är det f.n. 3,9 GB.

Winsxs ska du inte ta bort då den innehåller drivrutiner nödvändiga för de program du installerat.

The Winsxs folder, stores multiple copies of dll's in order to let multiple applications run in Windows without any compatibility problem. If you browse inside, you will see what look like a lot of duplicate dlls, each having the same name. These are actually, different versions of the same files which are being stored; as different programs may require different versions. In short, Winsxs, which stands for 'Windows Side By Side', is Vista's native assembly cache. Libraries which are being by multiple applications are stored there. This feature was first introduced, in Windows ME and was considered as Microsoft's solution to the so-called 'dll hell' issues that plagued Windows 9x.
