2.	ADDITIONAL LICENSE RIGHTS—REDISTRIBUTABLE COMPONENTS

2.1	Source Code. "Source Code" means source code that is located in any directory or sub-directory named "samples" in the Software or that is otherwise identified as sample code in the Software, other than source code included in the SPSSDK, or is identified as Microsoft Foundation Class Libraries ("MFC"), Template Libraries ("ATL"), and C runtimes (CRTs). Microsoft grants you a limited, nonexclusive license (a) to use and modify any Source Code to design, develop, and test your software applications; and (b) to make and distribute copies of the Source Code and your modifications, subject to your compliance with Section 3.

2.2	Redistributable Code. All portions of the Software that are listed in the text file \License\Redist.txt collectively constitute "Redistributable Code." Microsoft grants you a limited, nonexclusive license to reproduce and distribute Redistributable Code in object code form only, subject to your compliance with Section 3.

3.	DISTRIBUTION REQUIREMENTS AND LICENSE LIMITATIONS

3.1	Your licenses under Section 2 to distribute Source Code, any modifications you make to the Source Code under Section 2.1, and Redistributable Code (collectively, "Redistributables") are conditioned on the following: (a) you will distribute Redistributables only in object code form and in conjunction with and as a part of a software application developed by you that adds significant and primary functionality to the Redistributables ("Application"); 
(b) the Redistributables will operate only in conjunction with a Microsoft Operating System Product; 
(c) your Application will invoke the Software only via interfaces described in the documentation accompanying the Software; 
(d) you will distribute your Application containing the Redistributables only pursuant to an end-user license agreement (which may be break-the-seal, click- wrap or signed) with terms no less protective than those contained in this EULA; 
(e) you will not use Microsoft’s name, logo, or trademarks to market your Application; 
(f) you will include a valid copyright notice on your Application sufficient to protect Microsoft’s copyright in the Software; 
(g) you will not remove or obscure any copyright, trademark or patent notices that appear on or in the Software as delivered to you;

(i) you will otherwise comply with the terms of this EULA.  You may not permit further distribution of Redistributables by your end users except that you may permit further redistribution of Redistributables by your distributors to end users if your distributors only distribute the Redistributables in conjunction with and as part of your Application or Applications, you comply with all other terms of this EULA, and your distributors comply with all restrictions of this EULA that are applicable to you.

3.2	Renaming MFC, ATL or CRTs. You must rename all files containing MFC, ATL or CRTs prior to distributing them or any modifications to them.

3.4	Notice for Windows Media Technologies. In each Application in which you include any Redistributables from the Windows Media Player SDK, Windows Media Services SDK, Windows Media Encoder SDK, or Windows Media Software Development Kit (including but not limited to, the Windows Media Format SDK) portions of the Software, you must include in your Application’s Help-About box (or if there is no such box, then in another location that end users will easily discover), a copyright notice stating the following: "Portions utilize Microsoft Windows Media Technologies. Copyright (c) 1999-2002 Microsoft Corporation. All Rights Reserved."

3.5	No Alteration to Setup Programs. If any Redistributables in the Software as delivered to you are contained in a separate setup program, then you may only
