Recently I'm developing an application which will call and run Autodock Vina executable.
(Thus, my work contains no source code from Autodock Vina)
If I can bundle Autodock Vina binary into my software binary distribution, my users may benefit.
However, I found the binary distribution of Autodock Vina for Windows on official site have different license from others (Apache license).
( http://vina.scripps.edu/download/autodock_vina_1_1_2_win32.msi , in which contains a special license )
I would like to confirm my understanding to this situation:
1. I cannot redistribute vina.exe from autodock_vina_1_1_2_win32.msi
2. However, I can compile a working vina.exe from source for Windows, then bundle the recoompiled binary with my application without any problem.
I would like to know if my statement above have any mistake.
Thanks in advance!
