Do I need to sign an IE redistribution license for .NET RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I am using Visual Studio 2005 to develop an application which includes the WebBrowser control.

    The application will be targetted for Vista and Win XP SP2 users.

     

    Prior to .NET, I think we were required to sign a redistribution license for IE activex control.

    Do we now need to sign a similar redistribution license for embedding WebBrowser control in .NET?

     

    I have been searching the whole microsoft web sites for this licence and could not find it.

    If we are required to sign it, could someone give me the url.

     

    If not, phew! & good grief!, and tell me why.

  • I wrote to the licensing people, and no one has bothered to reply.

     

    I am averse to making phone calls that make me speak to a machine and have me wait till cows come home. But cows never come home, do they?

     

    Isn't this a simple question with a simple answer someone from ms could simply answer yes/no/where ?

     

    There is a free Mozilla browser control - should I use that instead?

     

    A quote from their web site:

    An identical one! That's right, the Mozilla control will implement the IWebBrowser and DWebBrowserEvents interfaces that Microsoft have already defined for Internet Explorer.

    Since the Mozilla control implements exactly the same API, it will mean that developers can take existing IE code and port it, sometimes in a matter of minutes!
