Deployment of service pack 3 along with our software RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi, our application requires windows XP service pack 3.
    We had some issues with customers that didn't have it and needed to download the pack from the internet.
    Is it OK (I mean legally) to deploy the installation of service pack 3 on the CD that we send for customers?

  • HI Erez,

    Many software companies add Windows Installer, .NET framework or C++ Runtime files to their software installation media as these are often a prerequisite to run their application. I would "assume" that there is no issue with adding the XP service pack 3 executable (to go for sure, i suggest you contact Microsoft).
