Improve the Telerik dlls re-distribution process
I think that deploying scenario for applications and protecting dll-s are complicated. I think that better way is to use control panel. I want to send you needed informations through control panel, a and I want to provide me my version of dll-s that are protected and I can use it in my app. You build it on your own. The way you are doing it now is complicated, and can produce issues.

Hello,

@Eoin - yes this is permitted now, as long as the design binaries are not distributed.

@Rick - yes it is, as long as the design binaries are not distributed.

If you have any other questions, please let us know.

Our application is a closed source commercial application that a user must log in with an account in order to use, however the installer for this application is freely available on our website. Is this considered permitted use or are we required to protect the assemblies?

So just to be very clear with the updated documentation, my issue previously was with the Powershell scripts not running and protecting the DLLs, that step was what causes difficulty. The only way I could get around it was to have Telerik support run the protection step for me and get the protected DLLs that way.

With the updated policy if I am using the NoXaml binaries from nuget, can I redistribute them with my Commercial WPF applications without having to run the Powershell scripts?

Thanks,

Eoin

Hi Rick,

We just did update the redistribution policy in order to provide better experience. Please check the Examples of Permitted Uses section of the Redistributing Telerik Assemblies article.

Please, Rick and anybody in this thread, let us know if this change would work for you. If not - please share more information about the exact case.

I'm looking forward to your feedback.

Regards,
Kalin

Please implement this for the next release. We had our build server set up to run the necessary batch files so we could just check in the latest Telerik code and have the NuGet packages built automatically, but since the introduction of .NET Core support the build fails in new ways each release and manual intervention is required so we end up spending several hours each new release just to get our licensed NuGet packages built. There is no reason we should be responsible for building these DLLs.

I badly need a simple non-intrusive way to authenticate build DLL's. Half of what I create are plugins for Autodesk software. Upgrading an existing project to a Telerik solution prevents my DLL's from loading into AutoCAD entirely and probably various others I haven't got around to trying yet. I can manually attach a reference and it runs great on my dev machine, but only on my dev machine. So, I have really cool and expensive tools, but if I can't use them in many of my frequently created projects. What's the point of having expensive and (theoretically) time-saving toys when you can't easily show them off? 

 

I'll probably create a ticket about this after some more tinkering, but I suspect this will be a nightmarish solution and it seemed like great example of why this topic does require attention.

It would be great to have such feature to protect dll's.  its difficult to always keep eye's on privacy of software in the continuous releases. any solution would be really helpful.

I agree, it would be nice to get closer to a one click solution where possible. Especially since the process is repeatable between releases and re-distribution is an important part of an application release, this process should be simplified.

Thanks,
