Is this license apply to Window CE ? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi:

    Just wondering is this license apply to Window CE ? 

    We use the Microsoft Sample code as it is provided by Microsoft in our Window CE product, we pay Microsoft Window CE license fee for each product that we sold.  


    And if third part using the Microsoft sample code in open source, do we violate GNU General Public License ?

    Since we found by BlackDuck this is a GUU General Public License violation, strange enough, any suggestion on this ?

    Thanks for your help.

  • Hi All:  Thanks for the info.  Seems like the BlackDuck need  to update  their database, should not claim Microsoft license inside GNU license.
