Could you please qualify the use of Activatar in a commercial product.

As there is only a link to the Activatar dll is this permissible? If so, as the dll would be distributed with the commercial product, how do we fulfil the Ms-RL licensing terms? The product will be downloaded from The Internet, so do we have to maintain a download of Activatar/Ms-RL license terms on our site or just merely provide a link to

Just checked on the msn site and it gives the license as Ms-PL and Creative Commons. Please can you confirm the licensing terms.

Hi Malc,

You are free to distribute the Activatar.dll with your commercial product and don't need to distribute the license or a link to the license.

I would only ask you that if you find any bug or any important issue, please contact me or post a comment to make it more reliable.

Alvaro, that's cleared some confusion up on my part. Can I just say thank you, you've helped me a great deal along the path to getting my project off the ground!

Yes, of course if I find any problems I'll let you know.

And a big THANK YOU from me too for showing a true angelic spirit brother Alvaro :)
Can I repay you with some prime numbers that have prime digit sums too? :)
See for why Prime numbers are God's signature!
