This license regulates the use of the accompanying software. If you use the software, accept this license. If you do not accept the license, do not use the software. The WiX Toolset is released under the Microsoft Reciprocal license (MS-RL). A mutual license is used to ensure that others, who rely on the efforts of the WiX community, refer something to the WiX community. In particular, the license requires that corrections and improvements to the WiX tool with the same license be published. In the end, all this license change was a non-op in my head. We got a non-obsolete license. But nothing changes. The reciprocal license, now the MS-RL, must continue to apply only to the source code of the WiX toolkit. The goal is always to prevent people from “flying outside” the community.
When the WiX tool was transferred to the Outercurve Foundation, I forgot a detail that was obviously interesting to some of you. The license has been amended from Common Public License 1.0 (CPL) to Microsoft Reciprocal`s (MS-RL) license. Here`s why. (E) If you distribute part of the software as a source code, you can only do so under that license by including a full copy of that license in your distribution. If you distribute part of the software under a compilation or object code, you can only do so under a license corresponding to that license. A “contributor” is anyone who distributes their contribution under this license. The final step is to insert the LicenseAgreementDialogOverwritten Advanced Licensing Dialogue field into the installation graphical interface chain. Of course, that`s how it`s done under the noeud. Ask for an option to skip the license agreement in WixUIExtension. The WiX-Toolset (WiX) is licensed under the Microsoft Reciprocal License (MS-RL).
The MS-RL regulates the distribution of software and derivative works under its license and contains the definition of a derivative work under U.S. copyright. OuterCurve Foundation (and the .NET Foundation) does not consider WiX-generated installation packages to fall within the definition of a derivative work simply because they are created with WiX. As a result, WiX-generated installation packages are not normally included in the MS-RL, and each of your source codes, binaries, libraries, routines or other software components built into WiX-generated installation packages may be subject to other licensing conditions. Over the past 8 years, I have found only one drawback to mutual licensing. Developers sometimes become confused about what the license applies to. Obviously, the source code of the project is covered by the license. But what if binary files created from the source code are used to display another document? Does this document have to be mutually licensed? What happens if libraries created from source code in the project are used by another binary file? Should the new binary file use the mutual license? Questions continue. (A) Copyright Grant- Subject to the terms of this licence, including the terms of licence and restrictions set out in Section 3, each contributor grants you a non-exclusive, global and free copyright license to reproduce their contribution, prepare works derived from their contribution, and distribute their contribution or any derivative works you have created.
Instead of providing an option to skip the license agreement, the stock game can be supplemented by no version of Eula. The Wix_MinimalNoUla.wxs is a modified version of WixUI_Minimal.wxs as an example. As a Wix UI Amateur, I post it here in case anyone else finds this useful. (F) The software is licensed “as we will see.” You take the risk of using it.
