Your use of the Microsoft Product is governed by this Addendum and the EULA provided with the applicable Microsoft Product.

By exercising your rights and using the Microsoft Product, you agree to be bound by the terms of the EULA and this Addendum.

The following additional term applies to your use of the Microsoft Product:

Section 3.1(a) is deleted in its entirety and replaced with the following:
    (a)   If you are authorized and choose to redistribute Sample Code, Redistributable Code, VC Redistributables, or Limited Use Redistributable Code (collectively, the "Redistributables") as described in Section 2, you agree: (i) except as otherwise noted in Section 2.1 (Sample Code), to distribute the Redistributables only in object code form and in conjunction with and as a part of a software application product developed by you that adds significant and primary functionality to the Redistributables ("Licensed Product"); (ii) that the Redistributables only operate in conjunction with Microsoft Windows platforms; (iii) you distribute the Licensed Product containing the Redistributables pursuant to an end user license agreement (which may be "break-the-seal", "click-wrap" or signed), with terms no less protective than those contained herein; (iv) not to use Microsoft’s name, logo, or trademarks to market the Licensed Product; (v) to display your own valid copyright notice which shall be sufficient to protect Microsoft’s copyright in the Product; (vi) not to remove or obscure any copyright, trademark or patent notices that appear on the Product as delivered to you; (vii) to indemnify, hold harmless, and defend Microsoft from and against any claims or lawsuits, including attorney’s fees, that arise or result from the use or distribution of the Licensed Product; (viii) otherwise comply with the terms of this EULA; and (ix) agree that Microsoft reserves all rights not expressly granted.
    You also agree not to permit further distribution of the Redistributables by your end users except: (1) you may permit further redistribution of the Redistributables by your distributors to your end-user customers if your distributors only distribute the Redistributables in conjunction with, and as part of, the Licensed Product and you and your distributors comply with all other terms of this EULA; and (2) in the manner described in Section 3.2.
