I have a model that works inside of quattro pro.. i want to transfer it and create it's own program (so it doesn't have to depend on qpro) but i'm not sure what programming software would be best to use (visual basic or visuall c++)..or how to do it.. i have limited fortran programming experience so i know that wont help.. I'd like it to be as technical as possible, win95 with graphics and all..

what program is best and easier to use? also, is there a way i can easily transfer my model out of quattro pro without having to write the code/formulas all over again?

Thanks for the help!

Without knowing the details of your Quattro Pro application, it is difficult to say how complicated it would be to port this to another program.
If you do not have any experience with C++, you would be better off using Visual Basic. You will find it familiar enough, between your Fortran skills and the relatively straighforward command set.
You will have to re-enter your formulae. Though it might get a bit easier ir your export them as something easily viewed in notepad so that they can be pasted into the VB program.
You should get Microsoft Visual Basic. You will also need to get some of the "widget" packages, depending on what you are trying to accompllish. Graphics should not be a problem, pasting them in a window in VB is easy. Graphing? FOr that you would want to get one of the off the shelf packages (Pinnacle Graphics Server for VB would be my choice).
VB will cost a couple hundred (between 200 and 400) and the Pinnacle software another 200, so doing this will not be exactly cheap.
Good Luck
