Our commercial desktop application will use sqlce 3.5 sp2 database as local database.
(*.Sdf- file + dlls needed for using the database are distributed with our application)
We have purchased Visual Studio Professional.
I found this question about the subject:
However I would still like to ask:
In EULA there is this clause:
Distribution Requirements. For any Distributable Code you distribute, you must require distributors and external end users to agree to terms that protect it at least as much as this agreement.
- Does this mean, that we need to include something in the license agreement of our product ?
Thank you for the answer. However, I would like to clarify my question:
Our application is deployed by "Private File–Based Deployment" .
Necessary dlls are installed into our applications installation directory.
Referring to the first question:
When sqlce is distributed this way, do we need to include something in the license agreement of our product ?
Thanks. But still.. (I'm sorry, I just have to clarify this).
In this case:
Our customers are not required to agree the terms of SQLCE 3.5 sp2 EULA.
And license agreement of our product does not mention anything about SQLCE 3.5 sp2.
Is this OK ?
When our product is deployed by "Private File–Based Deployment", our customers dont't install SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2.
Install package of our application installs necessary dlls into our applications installation directory.
This way our customers don't have to install SQL Server Compact 3.5 SP2, because necessary dlls are delivered with our application.
So, this means that we have to include something (sqlce eula?) in the license agreement of our product ?
Look at the EULA_ENU.rtf and REDIST_ENU.TXT files in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition\v3.5
Please mark as answer, if this was it. Visit my SQL Server Compact blog
