  • Hello

    I create components that are used by applications sold by my company.  Am I able to distribute the following dlls with my components:

    1. System.Windows.Interactivity.
    2. Microsoft.Expresssion.Interactions.

    I have looked everywhere but cannot find a direct answer to this.

    Thanks,

    Andy

  • The files in Program Files\Microsoft SDKs\Expression\Blend\.NETFramework are redistributable.

    There are also Eula files in the folders. You can read them yourself, but the relevant part is:

  • Hi Andy Silica,

    Thank you for posting here.

    For your question, I do not have a good understanding for your question. Could you provide more details?

    1. How do you distribute?

    2. What do these dlls doing for?

    3. If it is possible, could you provide some screenshots for better understanding?

    Best Regards,

    Wendy

  • Hi Wendy

    Yes, sure I can provide more details.

    1. We use NuGet to distribute our dll.
    2. My team create a library of styles and templates for WPF controls.  Both standard controls and also custom controls. Other teams in the organisation then consume these controls into the applications that they create.

    I hope that helps?

  • Thank you for the links, but that is not exactly what I was l asking about, as we have a process for creating the NuGet package.

    The question that I need answered is about the legality of us including the Systems.Windows.Interactivity and Microsoft..Expressions.Interactions in our deliverable?

    Are we legally allowed to include those 2 dlls in our NuGet package?
