Source Code Rights

5 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

Hello,

I have a quick question if people post code without a license, what is assumed on this forum? Its always good pratice to include the author in the comments but I don't see anything specific that gives any indication as to if I have the right to copy and include in my code.

For one, I don't want legal trouble and second I couldn't find an answer anywhere for this question. It will be helpful to clarify what license is assumed when posting source code on this forum.

If you post it on a forum, there's usually no license to the code, unless someone has specifically stated that it's released under such-and-such license. It's considered good form to cite whose code you're using if you post it in another thread, but that's just considered good manners.

But remember IANAL so take this as it's given.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.

adamxp,

Unless otherwise stated, any code on this forum can be used without limitation. There are only a few members who do post their code under license and it is pretty obvious when you come across it. :oops:

Of course, crediting the original author when you use some of their code is always a good idea, even if the code is not under license. :bye:

Thanks guys that answers my question. If it comes to it I could always rewrite the code it wasn't that complicated, I just wanted to save some time and include the code.

I will include the code inside my own code and in that functions comments give credit like I planned on doing.

      Hi.
      I am writing a program that I want to use it to earn some money, so I have an idea that insert the license checking into it. But I haven't had a code yet.
      This is my idea:
      -Put my licenses onto my host with their limit days.
      -Every day the customers run the program with the license and the program will show costumers how many days left...
      Can you give me an example for that program? Thanks a lot if you can help me!

      Hi there,
      the title says it all. My problem here is: im starting the autoit compiled .exes from a cmd window. So im also passing needed parameters there. These parameters are in this case paths to files, and sometimes some slashes within these paths got switched with the german "ß" character which lies on the same key as the backslash. After checking the cmd window the .exe call with the parameter includes the correct path. For some odd reason its only happening sometimes and also only in the license_A_Prof_Sec function. So any hints what could cause this problem?
      Here is my code:
      #RequireAdmin run("C:\Program Files (x86)\Avira\AntiVir Desktop\avcenter.exe") sleep(2000) $aWins=WinList("Avira") For $i = 1 To $aWins[0][0] Switch $aWins[$i][0] case "Avira Professional Security" license_A_Prof_Sec($aWins[$i][1]) Case "Avira Free Antivirus" license_A_Free_AV($aWins[$i][1]) EndSwitch Next func license_A_Free_AV($handle) WinActivate($handle) sleep(3000) Send("!H") Send("m") $whnd=winwait("Avira Free Antivirus","Lizenz",60) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Static; INSTANCE:4]") $whnd=winwait("Öffnen") ControlSend($whnd,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]",$CMDLine[1]) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]") $whnd=WinWait("Avira Free Antivirus","Lizenz ist bereits vorhanden",60) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]") $whnd=WinWait("Avira Free Antivirus","Die Lizenzdatei wurde aktualisiert",60) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]") $whnd=WinWait("Avira Free Antivirus","Lizenzinformationen",60) sleep(500) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:8]") winclose("Avira Free Antivirus") EndFunc func license_A_Prof_Sec($handle) WinActivate($handle) sleep(3000) Send("!H") Send("l") $whnd=winwait("Öffnen","",60) ControlSend($whnd,"","[CLASS:Edit; INSTANCE:1]",$CMDLine[1]) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]") $whnd=WinWait("Avira Professional Security","Die Lizenzdatei wurde aktualisiert",60) ControlClick($whnd,"","[CLASS:Button; INSTANCE:1]") winclose("Avira Professional Security") EndFunc
