Is it legal to put FSharp.Core.dll from FSharp Redist Package into my application package and redistribute it with my application? I couldn't find any information about this.

  • Can you describe what you mean by "borrow". Do you mean are you allowed to redistribute it yourself with your application? Jun 13, 2011 at 15:30
  • @Jon Hopkins, yes, I updated the question, thanks.

    Did you just ask if it's all right to redistribute a part of the redistributable package? :P Jun 13, 2011 at 16:07

Yes, it is legal. The page you linked to says the following:

The F# redistributable package can be added to a deployment project to create a packaged, installable F# application that installs the F# runtime components when an application is installed on a client computer.

You can also check the redist.txt file in [program files]\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\ (or 9.0 if you're running 2008). You are allowed to redistribute libraries listed in that file and when you have F# installed, FSharp.Core.dll should be on that list.

  • I understood that part as I can put F# redist in my app package. Thanks.
