Is there such a thing as a freeware program along the lines of Visual Basic or Visual C++?

I just want to make very basic (pardon the pun) programs that have buttons, edit boxes and drop down boxes.

Any help is appreciated.

There are several. Try Java using the NetBeans IDE.

Here is a link to the NetBeans gui building tutuorial... http://www.netbeans.org/kb/41/form_getstart.html

Thanks for the link. :D

I've never programmed with Java before. When I think of Java I think of web applications. But this looks like what I was looking for. Thanks again.

When I tried installing it I got this message.

I tried using the "-is:javahome" option but I must be doing something wrong.

Any suggestions?

I have Java's Runtime Environment installed. Downloaded Microsofts Virtual Machine but it says that it can only upgrade an existing copy. Does anybody have a link to a full install of MSJVM? (all the links I've tried are either dead links or links to upgrades)

My problem was I downloaded only Netbeans. I found a link to Netbeans with JDK and everything is working now.

Thanks.

Yeah, you have to have the JDK (aka Java SDK) installed to do any Java development work. Having a runtime is not enough.

Download Dev-C++ and the MingW compiler, linker, and libs for free.

Or,

http://lab.msdn.microsoft.com/express/v ... fault.aspx
Beta 2 of VC++ EE is also free

Thanks Kybo_Ren.

I'm more comfortable with C/C++ so this is exactly what I was looking for.

Does Dev-C++ have a graphics library?

Do you mean, "Does it come with OpenGL"?

IIRC it doesn't, but you can add it

I was thinking more along the lines of a gtk, qt or something else. Have you done application development w/ OpenGL (normal apps, not game)? Is it any good for this?

This is also a good .NET IDE...

I've done some, in the VC++ Beta 2005. It works pretty well.

From what I hear, Dev-C++ works fine with OpenGL and such
http://www.bloodshed.net/dev/ will tell you more, most likely
