CTX is in the Windows Application Store

We are excited to announce that CTX is now available in the Microsoft Windows Application Store. If you’re running Windows 10 then this is now the preferred way to install CTX; if you’re running Microsoft’s new version of the operating system, Windows 10 S, it’s the only way to install CTX.

Installing from the store gives you many advantages, the most important is that your copy of CTX will always be the latest version, so there is no need to download and apply updates etc. Windows will manage all that for you. Being in the store also enables us to take advantage of a number of Windows 10 features that were unavailable to us previously, we will be adding a number of these features over the coming releases.

You can get the store version of CTX here.
