Remove Non-Commercial Font from Install Package (SF Square Head Bold.ttf)

Recommended Posts

The company that I am supporting is VERY conservative when it comes to Licensing.   The install package passes all checks except for this one font (SF Square Head Bold.ttf from http://www.shyfoundry.com) that is licensed for Non-Commercial use only.  Would it be possible to substitute a different font that has a better (non-conflicting/non-encumbering/unencumbered) license/EULA?

I know it is just a font, and we are removing the font post install, but it would be procedurally simpler for us hyper-compliant folks to just not have an encumbered license buried in the install package.

Software Repository/200038572_AutoIT_3.3.14.5/autoit-v3-setup.exe/install/Examples/Helpfile/Extras/SF Square Head Bold.ttf

https://shyfoundry.com/licensing/shareware-eula.html indicates Personal Use only, and even though the font itself is not the value we are providing, nor used in any way, it burdens the otherwise unencumbered use of this software.

Thanks so much!

John

And how is it an AutoIt issue ?

..because it is included in the installer?

@ThePappas,

You could simply remove it after install or use the ZIP file version and do the install yourself. 
This should only be an issue for the PC's that do the development...right?

@Nine & @JosYes, because it is included in the installer package and I cannot manipulate the signed installer.

@Jos: Yes, We are removing it from Zip and post install.  And Yes, for the dev workstations.  It would just make it easier for us with license compliance issues.  I cant imagine that there is no suitable replacement for that font that is not encumbered.  It seems like adding a separate and unneeded EULA to the install package.

You could be right there, but you are the first in all this time to request this and honestly doing a portable install (Copy/Paste) is pretty easy to do for an IT professional like yourself ....right? ;) 

Don't hold your breath for a new signed version of the installer anytime soon.
