Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2013 Windows 7/8 -- License does not allow use of OpenCL.lib?


After installing the Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2013, we've noticed that the binaries we're allowed to use as described in LicenseAgreement.rtf are specified in one of "clredist.txt, credist.txt, fredist.txt, redist.txt". This installation only provides a "redist.txt".

In redist.txt there are many .dll files listed. However, the prerequisite x86/OpenCL.lib and x64/OpenCL.lib files against which we must link our application to use this SDK at all, does not appear in redist.txt. As it stands, my understanding is this means we cannot safely use Intel SDK for OpenCL Applications 2013 in our product at all from a legal perspective.

But this seems very strange that a license would allow the use of DLLs but not the prerequisite LIB to use the SDK. Can someone please advise on the use of Intel's OpenCL SDK in commercial proprietary applications?
