Are there any legal issues in using Vistalizer? – SunnyShah Nov 19 '09 at 13:28
Thanks, I am also interested in knowing whether there a legal issues in supplying Vistalizator with my commercial application that uses SAPI? – user18618 Nov 19 '09 at 13:36

I'm not positive on this, but the answer is quite likely no. You will have to get an Ultimate version to install the English Language Pack.
