Lately, we've seen a few questions about redistributing some VIX API code, so I'd like to take a minute to explain how this works.
We want you to be able to use the VIX API to build on VMware's platform, so the EULA does allow you to redistribute the client run-time libraries as part of your own applications. (See the EULA for the exact terms.)
We recently updated the list of redistributable components to make sure it's complete. The updated list is part of the VIX API Reference Guide.
Here's the list of redistibutable code:
Redistributable Code and Sample Code
As noted in the End User License Agreement, the VIX API allows you to
build and distribute your own applications. To facilitate this, the
following files are designated as redistributable for the purpose of
- VixAllProducts.lib and VixAllProductsd.lib
- vix.lib and vix.dll
