I have great difficulty to understand:

why we are insisting to expose Forum to legal vulnerability
and continue endless discussion about it, by allowing embedding
application files in the scripts.

I warned about that from in the very beginning (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

In "normal" situation, every user is responsible for legality of use
of his computer and software in it.

1. It's a big question, when installation of 3rd party software happans:
- when it's embedded into the script
- when WB creates ISO
- during PE startup
2. It's not WB business to enforce 3rd party EULA at end-user side. I believe it's enough to include one disclamer that user accepts all EULAs related to all included software.
3. Regarding particular question of psc: just add checkbox to the script "Ask EULA confirmation at every run". Even better to make this flag global and check it in any script if necessary.
4. In general, with carefully written license you can transfer all responsibility for everything to the end-user. Extreme example: "You can not download any file from Boot-land web site, unless you verified that such download is allowed by the EULA related to that particular file. You agree to visit all related web sites before the download and verify that such download is not against your local law." (IMG:../forums/style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Let me repeat for n-th time:

1. NO embedding of files in scripts, except author's children!

2. WinBuilder is 100% legal and benign software:
what user will do with it, is purely user's responsibility!

3. What user will start on his machine has nothing to do
with WinBuilder and Boot-Land Forum!

This approach will keep Forum out of legal vulnerabilities!
