    Windows 10 gets OpenCL and OpenGL compatibility layers for apps

    Free from the Windows Store and will supposedly be updated regularly to support more applications. Not sure exactly how it works but I'm posting others can check it out:

    That question is.... which apps will benefit?

    This package supports apps that use OpenCL version 1.2 and earlier and OpenGL version 3.3 and earlier. Only certain apps can use this compatibility pack

    Too early to tell but from this article : https://www.windowslatest.com/2020/11/14/windows-10-gets-opencl-and-opengl-compatibility-layers-for-apps/

     

    "OpenCL and OpenGL compatibility package for Windows 10 will also help productivity and creative apps, so it’s really not just about games."

    I'll wait and see. I don't consider myself a "gamer", but productivity and creative apps user, yes.

    Is it easy to uninstall after installation? 

    Strange, it says in the M$ store that I own the app.... so I will have no way in knowing if anything is improved...

    It would uninstall just like other Windows Store app. I installed it--figured it can't hurt. I have a feeling it will get updated fairly regularly since the article says they will be continuing to add support for other apps frequently.
