Animations, Bitmaps and Icons of Visual Studio 2005

Fla
Good morning.
I'd like to know if I can use for free the animations, the bitmaps and
the icons inside the archive VS2005ImageLibrary.zip in the installation
path of VB2005 C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\Common7\VS2005ImageLibrary, for developing my application, without
any further royalty nor license, beyond the licensed copy of VB2005.
Thanks

Bongiorno!

See the "redist.txt" file in the "C:\Program Files\Microsoft Visual Studio
8\" folder. This file reads:

One or more of the files located in the .zip file below may be distributed
subject to the license terms for the software and the additional use terms
described in the .zip file.

VisualStudio2005ImageLibrary.zip

__________________________________________________ ___
The "redist.txt" is also mentioned in the VS 2005 EULA (eula.txt):

I don't see VS2005ImageLibrary on my machine. Is this because I only have
the Express Edition?

To answer Fla's question, yes, you can use those images in VS 2005 image
library freely to develop your own application with windows look style:

#Visual Studio 2005 Image Library
http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-us/lib...35(VS.80).aspx

For Phil's question, yes, the image library is provided with VS 2005
standard and above version, and Express edition doens't include it:
