Please help on AutoIT compiled Exe license issue! :(

Recommended Posts

Mcky

I am a freeware programmer and have been programming freeware with the great AutoIT 2/3 tool for years. I have some questions:

1. Is it OK for me to compile the program script into EXE and distribute them as freeware?

2. Am I allowed to charge money if people wants to download the source code in AutoIT3 format for my programs?

3. Does the perfomance of the scripts decrease once they are compiled to EXEs?

Thank you! :)

The help file:

Commercial Use. You may sell for profit and freely distribute scripts and/or compiled scripts that were created with the SOFTWARE PRODUCT.

This means it is ok to compile the script as freeware or you can sell it if you wish.

No, the performance of the scripts does not increase when they are compiled into executables.

Thanks kandieman! :)

So far I dont have any intentions of selling the source code of my programs, just curious.
