GCompris available from the Windows Store

As the title says, you can now buy the full version of GCompris for Windows 10 from the Windows Store.

Spread the word !

GCompris in Windows Store

GCompris in Windows Store
 

If you prefer to not use the store, or if you only want the free demo version, you can still download it from our Download page, and buy the activation code to unlock all the activities. The store is just one more way to distribute GCompris, and to provide some income to support the project.

As usual, the full version is free on Free-Software operating systems like GNU/Linux, but for proprietary operating systems like Windows, the full version has a cost. Of course, the source code of GCompris is and will always be under a Free-Software license.

Note: the package on the store contains the version using the software renderer instead of OpenGL, since it’s the only way we have for now to make sure it will work on any computer. If you really want the version using OpenGL, get it from our Download page.
