Licensing and Distribution in Laymans Terms? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    Is it free to use and deploy Microsoft Chart controls for commercial applications?

    Nobody can sue or go after me?

    Simple as that.  Thanks!

  • From threads here and here:

    "Same license applies to the chart as for the .NET Framework. In other words, you can use it for free in any .NET application."

    "The MSChart.exe is released with a Windows Supplementary License Terms.  It means that the user who installs it need a valid license of Windows Operating System to run it."

    The latter specifically for the chart control add-on for .NET 3.5. The chart control is a part of .NET 4.0 by default.
