Visual Studio Template for GUI Driven Windows Program with Software Licenses RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm a total novice when it comes to software development - but I'm looking to change that and put the time and energy in to develop a product.

    I'm trying to figure out the best platform/language(s) to build a software program. Preferably for use in windows, but maybe I should keep it open.

    The Premise - A program with a gui that allows drag and drop functionality to build a model. A database exists for each component in the model. A number of options exist to perform some simple calculations for the model. Perhaps run some sensitivities. Display some graphs. Provide structured text output. The database needs to be easy to update. At some point, I may choose to release the software to other companies via licenses. I want to be able to add a bunch of widgets that add great functionality and make a great experience for the user.

    I have some ideas to get starting, but I'm really looking for some advice as to where I should spend some effort to get the ball rolling. Maybe some direction on the kind of template I should be using in Visual Studio.

    Much appreciated.

  • Just a regular PC/laptop. Or somebody on a Mac.
