The following MS KB article:
indicates that AutoExNT is part of the MS Windows 2000 Resource Kit.
If the licensing terms of the MS Windows 2000 Resource Kit is the same
as the MS Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit, then AutoExNT is not freely
distributable. This is the same issue that srvany.exe (from the MS
Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit) has.
My suggestion would be to remove your distro's dependency on AutoExNT
and replace it will Idetix's Invoker which is unencumbered. You can
find Invoker at:
BTW, I may eventually patch postmaster (i.e., postgres.exe) to be a
true NT service similar to what Cygwin did for inetd.exe. If so, I
will certainly submit this patch for consideration.
