In the world population 8% of men and 0.5% of women are color blind. This is roughly 300 million men and 19 million women. There should exist a free program to assist them.

Execution on Windows 10

When running for the 1st time, Windows 10 shows a message saying this program isn't signed and because of that it could be bad to your computer. This program is a normal program and to run it you have to choose 'more info' and 'run anyway'. In the properties of the .exe file you can choose to ignore this warning that the program isn't signed. To sign a program so that this warning doesn't appear, a programmer must buy a digital certificate every year from a certification company and this type of certificates are expensive, that's the reason why this program isn't digitally signed yet.
