It's a bit confusing to me. Seems you can distribute them along with an
app you write when you have the license to the full version of the
compiler ?, so it would seem to be possible. Probably need to get the
canonical EULA text for them to have a real idea if its possible or not.

And you can also download some them at least from the msdn websites as
well. and I see that http://kegel.com/wine/winetricks has a script which
downloads these from known locations and runs their installers. I would
*imagine* that it would be ok to do that anyway, i.e. a script that
downloads the installers, runs them and let the end-user click-through
any relevant EULAs ?
