VS Express 2010 - .NET redistribution

Posted 05 September 2011 - 12:00 PM

Hello.

I'm using Visual Studio Express 2010, and I know that I can use this software to create a commercial application.

But, how about .NET Framework?

Can I distribute .NET Framework with my own application in installation package?

For example. Can I download .NET Framework from Microsoft page, create silent installation package and distribute with my application?

With VS Professional there is no problem, because then I have a license for .NET SDK and I can distribute framework without doubts, but I'm not sure how this works with VS Express.

I cannot find anything about it on the Microsoft pages and EULA of Visual Express don't explain it.

Thanks for any suggestions.

Regards

The .NET Framework is nothing to do with Visual Studio, you're not licensing anything about .NET when you purchase that.

Read more at MSDN.

the .Net framework is free to distribute however you see fit. There is no licensing for the .Net framework.
