There is probably an obvious reason this is not possible but I could not see it when reading through the MS licensing information. It seems to me the linker bin could be redistributed.


9. SCOPE OF LICENSE. The software is licensed, not sold. This agreement only gives you some rights to use the software. Microsoft reserves all other rights.

So you should find an expressly granted right to redistribute.

Apparently Intel was able to redistribute it with their fortran compiler.

IntelĀ® Visual Fortran development environment based on Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 Shell is included with Academic and Commercial licenses for IntelĀ® Visual Fortran. It is not included with Evaluation or Student licenses. This development environment provides everything necessary to edit, build and debug Fortran applications. Some features of the full Visual Studio product are not included, such as: Resource Editor (see ResEdit*, a third-party tool, for a substitute)
Automated conversion of Compaq* Visual Fortran projects

I guess what I mean to say is that they did it, maybe it can be done. Of course VS Shell is still way more than is necessary for our purposes.
