Hello i'm a former home school student. In the time I was home schooled I made a few computer programs that helped me study. The best one I made was a quiz game about US presidents. A few weeks ago I decided to release it as open source software and started to add to it. Now i've decided to try to sell copies of it as a home schooling program but i'm not sure if it will sell as is.
So what i'm asking is could you guys download it from Here and tell me what I would have to add to it before you would be willing to buy a copy for $5

You guys arent much help. All I want to know is what questions I need to add to my program and no one will even give me an answer. I'm being nice and trying to help people by making this program and only charging $5 for it(it will also be free to download forever). I would just have it free online and not try to sell copys on floppy disks/CD-ROMs if I didn't need some extra money but I do.

I'm not even trying to sell you something. All i'm trying to do is see if its good and what I need to add to make it worth $5.

So could someone please help out and give me a suggestion?

Well, you ask people to download a strange .exe, install it, then comment on the results so you can create a commercial product. Some people might be nice enough to go ahead and do that, but you can't expect massive amounts of immediate feedback Razz Maybe I'll do it on the weekend.

My guess is that to make this into a commercial product, you'd need to include at least several other quizzes besides US President. Your software is rather narrowly focused at the moment.
