msxsl.exe License/Distribution RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm a software developer and I'm hoping that I can distribute msxsl.exe

    https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=21714

    Can anybody provide me with licensing information for this .exe and whether or not I can freely distribute it?

    Thanks!

  • Hi Chris,

    It is absolutely free for the Windows OS.

    It is a part of the MS Core XML Services. Please see an excerpt below from the same link you provided.

    "...

    Supported Operating System

    Windows 2000, Windows NT, Windows XP

      • Because msxsl.exe is only a wrapper, Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) must be installed on the computer. You can download Microsoft Core XML Services (MSXML) 4.0 from the Microsoft Download Center..."

    By the way, msxsl.exe is very old. There are better free XML utilities.
