What isn't free is the binary package but you can make it yourself as the "Community Edition" that is under BSD-style open source license: http://sqlcipher.net/license. The only thing is that you must to include that license with your program.rathinagiri wrote:It is great to have a contact with the original developer.
I was eager to introduce our success in this regard in the mailing list. Since SQLCipher windows part is not free, I didn't tell anything there.
Look what it says on their website:
Here is the mentioned license:SQLCipher's community edition is Open Source Software available under a permissive license that allows it's use in both open source and commercial products. All products that include SQLCipher (including those that use the Commercial Edition binaries) must abide by the following license, as well as the licenses for dependent and integrated products listed below. This generally requires attribution and reproduction of license grants in the application interface and/or materials.

And the mentioned thread on the mailing list: https://groups.google.com/forum/?fromgr ... cYpa1a_RTMWindows Binaries
The best resource for compiling SQLCipher on windows can be found in the MINGW thread on the mailing list. This process can be both difficult and time consuming, so we make a variety of pre-built windows binary packages available for sale.
Finally the "Commercial Edition": http://sites.fastspring.com/zetetic/product/sqlcipher
In our case it is clear to me that we are using the "Community Edition" that is free as I previously explained before.
More interesting information about building SQLCipher for Windows here: http://thebugfreeblog.blogspot.fr/2012/ ... ndows.html
I believe (actually I hope) that we can find an even easier way to build SQLite with SQLCipher than the way you found (although that's enough and pretty good)
I hope that's make it clearer for us all.
