See the new features on the History of versions.

If you already have Engarde 10, update it

Download Engarde 

  • Unzip the archive to a location of your choice accessible to all users. You get an ENGARDE10 directory.

  • Make sure, if possible, that you do not have an ENGARDE10 directory inside another ENGARDE10 directory, by moving the contents of the deeper ENGARDE10 directory to the directory that contains it.

  • If you NEVER use the context of the FFE (Fédération Française d’Escrime), it is suggested to delete the file contexte_ffe.txt of the Ressources1 directory.

  • Engarde 10 is ready for use. You can launch it by double clicking on the Engarde10.nn.exe application.

  • Engarde10 has three possible ways of functioning: MINI, BASIC and PRO. The purchase of the license allows running in mode BASIC or PRO.

  • To purchase a license, click on the "Buy" button on the home page.

  • To install a license, launch Engarde and choose "Keys | Install a key"


  • Once installed, a license key cannot be reinstalled or transferred to another computer.

  • Backup your license to avoid losing it in case of a problem on your computer.

The directory organization is as follows:

The SystemeEngarde10 directory contains 4 applications:

  • Engarde10.nn.exe for managing competitions.

  • DiapoEngarde10.nn.exe to display results.

  • ShowPiste1.nn.exe to display information of the pistes.

  • EngardeSwitch1.nn.exe to control certain displays.


It is recommended to create a shortcut to SystemeEngarde10 on the desktop and in the start menu. If you use often Engarde, you can also have it in the task bar.

The Competitions directory is used to store competitions. If it does not exist at the installation, it is created automatically. When opening or creating a competition, it is saved in this repertoire by Engarde. It is possible, however, to save the competition at another location.

The Ressources1 directory contains:

  • The "Banner" directory is only used by Engarde PRO. Put inside images that Engarde PRO can place at  the top or the bottom of the documents.

  • The "Cles" directory stores keys that are automatically installed when purchasing licenses for Basic or PRO mode.

  • The "diapomodels" directory is used to store the DiapoEngarde screen models, scripts, and transition banners.

  • The "Drapeaux" directory contains the flags of the nations.

  • The "models" directory is used to store the Engarde document models.

  • The "mesFormules" directory contains the personal formulas.

The SystemeEngarde10\Ressources2 directory contains:

  • The "Formules" directory contains the formula files, in French and in English.

  • The "Textes" directory contains Engarde texts and help files in different languages.

  • The "Manuels" directory contains Engarde user manuals for certain features in English and in French.

  • The "HTML" directory contains the HTML style files.

The SystemeEngarde10\Old-applications directory contains the older versions of the applications. You should put these old versions in this directory as you updated the application (see the update manual LINK).
