 MICROSOFT SOFTWARE LICENSE TERMS

MICROSOFT .NET LIBRARY

These license terms are an agreement between Microsoft Corporation (or based on
where you live, one of its affiliates) and you. Please read them. They apply to
the software named above, which includes the media on which you received it, if
any. The terms also apply to any Microsoft

. updates,

. supplements,

. Internet-based services, and

. support services

for this software, unless other terms accompany those items. If so, those terms
apply.

BY USING THE SOFTWARE, YOU ACCEPT THESE TERMS. IF YOU DO NOT ACCEPT THEM, DO NOT
USE THE SOFTWARE.

IF YOU COMPLY WITH THESE LICENSE TERMS, YOU HAVE THE PERPETUAL RIGHTS BELOW.

1. INSTALLATION AND USE RIGHTS.

a. Installation and Use. You may install and use any number of copies of the
software to design, develop and test your programs.

b. Third Party Programs. The software may include third party programs that
Microsoft, not the third party, licenses to you under this agreement. Notices,
if any, for the third party program are included for your information only.

2. DATA. The software may collect information about you and your use of the
software, and send that to Microsoft. Microsoft may use this information to
improve our products and services. You can learn more about data collection and
use in the help documentation and the privacy statement at
http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=528096 . Your use of the software
operates as your consent to these practices.

3. ADDITIONAL LICENSING REQUIREMENTS AND/OR USE RIGHTS.

a. DISTRIBUTABLE CODE. The software is comprised of Distributable Code.
"Distributable Code" is code that you are permitted to distribute in programs
you develop if you comply with the terms below.

i . Right to Use and Distribute.

. You may copy and distribute the object code form of the software.

. Third Party Distribution. You may permit distributors of your programs to copy
and distribute the Distributable Code as part of those programs.

ii. Distribution Requirements. For any Distributable Code you distribute, you
must

. add significant primary functionality to it in your programs;

. require distributors and external end users to agree to terms that protect it
at least as much as this agreement;

. display your valid copyright notice on your programs; and

. indemnify, defend, and hold harmless Microsoft from any claims, including
attorneys' fees, related to the distribution or use of your programs.

iii. Distribution Restrictions. You may not

. alter any copyright, trademark or patent notice in the Distributable Code;

. use Microsoft's trademarks in your programs' names or in a way that suggests
your programs come from or are endorsed by Microsoft;

. include Distributable Code in malicious, deceptive or unlawful programs; or

. modify or distribute the source code of any Distributable Code so that any
part of it becomes subject to an Excluded License. An Excluded License is one
that requires, as a condition of use, modification or distribution, that

. the code be disclosed or distributed in source code form; or

. others have the right to modify it.

4. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. This agreement only
gives you some rights to use the software. Microsoft reserves all other rights.
Unless applicable law gives you more rights despite this limitation, you may use
the software only as expressly permitted in this agreement. In doing so, you
must comply with any technical limitations in the software that only allow you
to use it in certain ways. You may not

. work around any technical limitations in the software;

. reverse engineer, decompile or disassemble the software, except and only to
the extent that applicable law expressly permits, despite this limitation;

. publish the software for others to copy;

. rent, lease or lend the software;

. transfer the software or this agreement to any third party; or

. use the software for commercial software hosting services.

5. BACKUP COPY. You may make one backup copy of the software. You may use it
only to reinstall the software.

6. DOCUMENTATION. Any person that has valid access to your computer or internal
network may copy and use the documentation for your internal, reference
purposes.

7. EXPORT RESTRICTIONS. The software is subject to United States export laws and
regulations. You must comply with all domestic and international export laws and
regulations that apply to the software. These laws include restrictions on
destinations, end users and end use. For additional information, see
www.microsoft.com/exporting.

8. SUPPORT SERVICES. Because this software is "as is," we may not provide
support services for it.

9. ENTIRE AGREEMENT. This agreement, and the terms for supplements, updates,
Internet-based services and support services that you use, are the entire
agreement for the software and support services.

10. APPLICABLE LAW.

a. United States. If you acquired the software in the United States, Washington
state law governs the interpretation of this agreement and applies to claims for
breach of it, regardless of conflict of laws principles. The laws of the state
where you live govern all other claims, including claims under state consumer
protection laws, unfair competition laws, and in tort.

b. Outside the United States. If you acquired the software in any other country,
the laws of that country apply.

11. LEGAL EFFECT. This agreement describes certain legal rights. You may have
other rights under the laws of your country. You may also have rights with
respect to the party from whom you acquired the software. This agreement does
not change your rights under the laws of your country if the laws of your
country do not permit it to do so.

12. DISCLAIMER OF WARRANTY. THE SOFTWARE IS LICENSED "AS-IS." YOU BEAR THE RISK
OF USING IT. MICROSOFT GIVES NO EXPRESS WARRANTIES, GUARANTEES OR CONDITIONS.
YOU MAY HAVE ADDITIONAL CONSUMER RIGHTS OR STATUTORY GUARANTEES UNDER YOUR LOCAL
LAWS WHICH THIS AGREEMENT CANNOT CHANGE. TO THE EXTENT PERMITTED UNDER YOUR
LOCAL LAWS, MICROSOFT EXCLUDES THE IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY,
FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AND NON-INFRINGEMENT.

FOR AUSTRALIA – YOU HAVE STATUTORY GUARANTEES UNDER THE AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER LAW
AND NOTHING IN THESE TERMS IS INTENDED TO AFFECT THOSE RIGHTS.

13. LIMITATION ON AND EXCLUSION OF REMEDIES AND DAMAGES. YOU CAN RECOVER FROM
MICROSOFT AND ITS SUPPLIERS ONLY DIRECT DAMAGES UP TO U.S. $5.00. YOU CANNOT
RECOVER ANY OTHER DAMAGES, INCLUDING CONSEQUENTIAL, LOST PROFITS, SPECIAL,
INDIRECT OR INCIDENTAL DAMAGES.

This limitation applies to

. anything related to the software, services, content (including code) on third
party Internet sites, or third party programs; and

. claims for breach of contract, breach of warranty, guarantee or condition,
strict liability, negligence, or other tort to the extent permitted by
applicable law.

It also applies even if Microsoft knew or should have known about the
possibility of the damages. The above limitation or exclusion may not apply to
you because your country may not allow the exclusion or limitation of
incidental, consequential or other damages.

Please note: As this software is distributed in Quebec, Canada, some of the
clauses in this agreement are provided below in French.

Remarque : Ce logiciel étant distribué au Québec, Canada, certaines des clauses
dans ce contrat sont fournies ci-dessous en français.

EXONÉRATION DE GARANTIE. Le logiciel visé par une licence est offert « tel quel
». Toute utilisation de ce logiciel est à votre seule risque et péril. Microsoft
n'accorde aucune autre garantie expresse. Vous pouvez bénéficier de droits
additionnels en vertu du droit local sur la protection des consommateurs, que ce
contrat ne peut modifier. La ou elles sont permises par le droit locale, les
garanties implicites de qualité marchande, d'adéquation à un usage particulier
et d'absence de contrefaçon sont exclues.

LIMITATION DES DOMMAGES-INTÉRÊTS ET EXCLUSION DE RESPONSABILITÉ POUR LES
DOMMAGES. Vous pouvez obtenir de Microsoft et de ses fournisseurs une
indemnisation en cas de dommages directs uniquement à hauteur de 5,00 $ US. Vous
ne pouvez prétendre à aucune indemnisation pour les autres dommages, y compris
les dommages spéciaux, indirects ou accessoires et pertes de bénéfices.

Cette limitation concerne:

. tout ce qui est relié au logiciel, aux services ou au contenu (y compris le
code) figurant sur des sites Internet tiers ou dans des programmes tiers ; et

. les réclamations au titre de violation de contrat ou de garantie, ou au titre
de responsabilité stricte, de négligence ou d'une autre faute dans la limite
autorisée par la loi en vigueur.

Elle s'applique également, même si Microsoft connaissait ou devrait connaître
l'éventualité d'un tel dommage. Si votre pays n'autorise pas l'exclusion ou la
limitation de responsabilité pour les dommages indirects, accessoires ou de
quelque nature que ce soit, il se peut que la limitation ou l'exclusion ci-
dessus ne s'appliquera pas à votre égard.

EFFET JURIDIQUE. Le présent contrat décrit certains droits juridiques. Vous
pourriez avoir d'autres droits prévus par les lois de votre pays. Le présent
contrat ne modifie pas les droits que vous confèrent les lois de votre pays si
celles-ci ne le permettent pas.
