Third party software bundled in CIC

As I fought with a spell checker issue, I discovered CIC 2.4 bundles a treasure trove of third-party applications.  While I knew CIC bundled a few (such as Crystal Reports), I had no idea how many I could find.  Also, I am surprised to find certain software in CIC: what exactly does PayPal have to do with a telephony system?  Finally, this hunt reaffirmed that liberally-licensed open source software can be found in big, proprietary applications.

Interaction Client Win32

Interaction Client Win32 admits to bundling LeadTools (which makes Imaging SDKs), Caere for OCR, IBM, and Apache.

Interaction Client .NET

Interaction Client .NET makes similar claims and mentions DevAgeSourcePack (a .NET library under a MIT-style license).

Poking around in the file system reveals even more.

I didn’t even count any Microsoft components such as the Microsoft Java Virtual Machine (found in Interaction Scripter). I am sure there are many more third party applications bundled in CIC, but my curiosity has limits.🙂
