Redistributable Libraries for Fortran 2019

I am developing a commercial program, which includes in the prerequisites:
Intel(R) Visual Fortran Redistributables on Intel(R) 64 (ww_ifort_redist_intel64_2019.5.281.msi).  The installer can be downloaded for free using this link:
 
 
I was wondering if we need Intel permission to use this package in the next cases:
1. Automatically download the installer of the redistributable (MSI) during the installation of our program.
2. Pack in our installer the installer of the redistributable and launch the installation automatically (To generate an installation without internet connection).
3. Pack in our installer the DLLs of the  redistributable that we need (To generate a silent installation).
 
I found here the End User License Agreements for Intel products:
https://software.intel.com/content/www/us/en/develop/articles/end-user-license-agreement.html#inpage.... However, I do not know what kind of license applies in my case (ifort_redist_intel64_2019).
 
Somebody can help me with this please?...

Yes to all of those, though I recommend using the newer oneAPI redistributables instead. See my reply in the other recent thread for more information.

I recommend against packing the DLLs separately, though - this often creates problems when end users are also using the Intel compilers or some other executable that uses the Intel DLLs. If you place them in the same folder as your EXE and don't add that folder to PATH, you'll avoid most of the problems, but using the installer or MSI is preferable. Whatever you do, DON'T copy these DLLs into the Windows or Windows System folder!
