Subject Legal advise on including Visual C++ Redistributable package into ODBC installer
Date Wed, 24 Oct 2018 15:40:30 GMT
Hi guys,

I need your advice here. As some of you probably know we have
Windows installers for ODBC in our binary releases, so users won't need
to build Ignite C++ if all they want is to install and use our ODBC driver.
However, as we build driver with MSVC 10 when we are preparing our
binary release, user should have Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable package
for it to work properly. If they do not, it just do not work, not giving any
human-readable errors, which is very confusing to a user.

So my idea was to check for required package during installation and
give user a download link to a proper package. However, on the WiX
website there are articles on how to include the package into installer [1].
So I've thought that maybe this is even the better way to solve a problem.

So thus is my question, is it OK from the legal standpoint, if we will
installer, that includes Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable package? We are not
going to put any binaries under the source control, of course.

Can anyone help?
