Licensing of programs my Problem

Posted 04 May 2013 - 06:49 AM

Hi guys
I am to create a game / program but my problem is about licensing which are:

1. My IDE codeblock & Dev-C++ does NOT allow my created program to be release as closed-source.

2. I want to create a commercial/proprietary Program or Game so I can sell it.

3. What IDEs, libraries(GUI, Physics, etc) you can recommend to me based on my problem? Can you recommend websites which explains in layman terms the different kinds of licenses.

4. Also does LGPL license allow me this?

5. Comment any further information you want to share with me.

*You can IGNORE question #3, if it's not appropriate in this site.

Thank you

How do you figure? Codeblocks itself is under GPLv3, but that doesn't mean your code is.

Okay.

Seems like a pretty straight forward bing search:

bing'ed "lgpl explained" and got the awesome tldrlegal.com answer

Is your question on just the license, or really on a kick looking for a software registration system?
