Buying the full version

On proprietary operating systems (Windows/Mac/Android...), the full version of GCompris has a cost.
We provide a free demo with a limited number of activities, 100 on the 154 available.
Follow the instructions below to buy the full version.

  • Windows, macOS
  • For Windows and macOS, you can get the demo from the download page, and buy here the activation code to unlock the full version. The cost is 9€.

    After the payment you will immediately receive an email with instructions (check your spam folder). If you do not receive this email please contact us at

    This registration gives you the right to update to any new release of GCompris for 2 years. After that period, you can continue to use the latest release you got for as long as you wish.


    You can use this code on several computers.
    Schools and other institutions can buy a site activation key to support the project.
    Please contact us at to request a quote.

    Alternatively, you can also buy the full version of GCompris directly from the Windows Store.
    However, the Windows Store requires Windows 10.

  • Android
  • For Android, the recommended way is to directly buy the full version from Google Play store.

    You can also install the demo available in the store, and use the in-app purchase button to unlock the full version from it. Note however that this second method doesn't allow to use the Google Play Family Library to share it with your family. Also, a few users reported issues to unlock the demo.

  • GNU/Linux
  • For users of Free-Software operating systems, the full version is always free.
    This means that for GNU/Linux, the installer we provide and the distribution packages have the full version. There is no need for any activation code.
    However, you can still support us with a donation, see below.

    Thanks for supporting Free Software in education.

    You, your children or your school love GCompris. You can support the project with a donation.

    Developing software takes a lot of time, it needs hardware, and other requirements that have a cost. Currently all sales and donations are used to support one of the main contributors, a professional graphic artist and developer who is now in charge of the graphics and co-maintaining the application.
