OK, I have a quick question about the license. I'm writing a custom SFX. Obviously, I can't include the license as a separate text file.

The self extracting installer is for a commercial product. I am compiled the dll into the sfx stub. What should I do about the license.

Does the license even allow this?

I'm no lawyer. But.. I think

  • The intent of the license for DotNetZip is to allow the use you described, among others.
  • It seems to me, the right thing is to include the license of DotNetZip into the license for your product.  ("The installer uses DotNetZip, which is covered by the following license...")  This is pretty common.
