> Is it legal for me to include gdiplus.dll and msvcp90.dll with my application?
I'm not a lawyer (IANAL), but I am confident that the distribution of
these files is permitted.
If you want a 2nd opinion, I would ask in the various setup utility
forums (like InnoSetup) or in any of the MS language forums whose
compiled applications require the use of these run time files, eg. MS
Visual C++ and MS Visual FoxPro.
