As you know, before download Apache Lounge we must install Visual C++ Redistributable Visual Studio 2015 - 2022 (vc redist x64 depending on architecture); its license, among other things, says: "You may install and use any number of copies of the software" and beyond "You can not : share, publish, rent or lease the software, or provide the Software as a stand-alone hosted solution or in combination with any of your applications for use by third parties, or transfer the Software or this Agreement to any third party." I would like to develop and market my web application built in PHP and I would use Apache Lounge as web server and would have installed "vc redist x64"; Considering the text of the license mentioned, I wonder if it allows me to market my application or should I get another software wich let me do it. Please, does anybody know about it and can clear?

PHP needs also the Redistributable.

Common practice is that the customer installs it. Like with Apache and PHP.

Thanks Admin, assuming that I have to install it (vc redist x64) on my server so that php and apache can work because many users would connect to my web application (even from movil phones throught a web browser), does the license of the "vc redist X64" allows me to market my application?

So the users do not install Apache and/or PHP ?
They access the application with a browser ?

Looks you do not have a license issue.

So the users do not install Apache and/or PHP ? Answer: They do not have to install them but only me in my server including vc redist x64.

They access the application with a browser ? Answer: Yes, they would have to access the application with a browser using only a link.

Looks you do not have a license issue. :I dont understand this part of the license consequently I dont know if applies in my case: "You can not : share, publish, rent or lease the software, or provide the software as a stand-alone hosted solution or in combination with any of your applications for use by third parties"

Notice that a huge number of servers (millions ?) running PHP apps. Never seen license issues.

Do not worry.

Hi,

In the Wampserver prerequisites as well as for the various Apache, PHP, MySQL and MariaDB addons it is well specified that it is required that the user verifies that he has installed the latest version of the VC++ 2015-2022 redistributables.

But I never include the installation of this VC++ redistributable in the installers of Wampserver or addons.

I simply created a tool to check if the redistributables are installed on the system and it is up to the user to install the missing ones.
