Redistribution of Open XML 2.5 RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have used Open XML 2.5 SDK to develop a excel reader component in our product. How do i redistribute the Open XML 2.5? Do i have to ask our customers to download and run the SDK installer? Or can i just copy the assembly myself locally ( DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll) and install it using our installer? Is it ok for us to redistribute this assembly?

    Thanks

  • Hi Gopal,

    It's based on my experience that you can distribute the DocumentFormat.OpenXml.dll with your application.

    Hope it can help you.

                  Thanks for your feedback. Can i go ahead and you use it or you think i should wait for someone from MS to confirm it? 

    Thanks
