I just had two questions regarding the IPP libraries. Our company is looking at using the optimized ZLIB components of the IPP libraries. I just wanted to make sure about the licensing of the library first.
If we buy a copy of the library for the $199 price and link it into our project, are there any other licensing concerns that I should be aware of that would be associated with our selling our products including the library code?
The second question is related to AMD processors. Since we need to support systems running both Intel and AMD processors, I just wanted to make sure if we use the IPP ZLIB library, will work on systems with either processor?
