License terms for linking pthread lib on windows
Hi forum, I stumbled over a new dependency to the pthread lib on windows, as described and solved in https://community.flexera.com/t5/FlexNet-Publisher-Forum/FLEXNET-11-19-1-for-windows-Build-issues-with-unresolved-pthread/td-p/246325
Now my question: Are there any license right restrictions when statically linking this library into my executable together with the other flexnet sdk libs?
If it comes with LGPL, maybe dynamically linking would give me more flexibility? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pthreads#POSIX_Threads_for_Windows
Thanks for your quick answer! But for our legal department I have to know the exact license terms. As a software vendor we have to be 100% sure, whether we can (here: are allowed to) use a piece of software in our tools. Is this pthread lib your (revenera's) original code, which only by accident has the same name as described in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pthreads#POSIX_Threads_for_Windows ?
Hi @frankson ,
It's not our code , it is a third party lib as mentioned in the link you shared .
And there will not be any license right restrictions when you statically link this library into your executable together with the other FlexNet SDK libs.
