Options for GUI design

I would like to know what options are available for GUI
design. The application that I am intending to write will
run under Win95, so the GUI will have to run on top of the
Windows API. I am thinking of using Director 6.0, as I know
it is possible to get Director and Win95 to talk to each other -- but Director is expensive, and I'd rather not have to request funding for that much money if another alternative exists.

Thanks.

Alternatives to purchasing a new version of Macromedia's Director 6.0 would be:

1.- Call Macromedia and request a discounted UPGRADE version and tell them you currently own 4.0.  Most software companies will send you the upgrade with no questions asked, sharply discounted.

2.- Try USENET.  There are quite a few news groups dedicated to buying/selling used hardware/software.

3.- Try http://cayman.ebay2.com/.  It's an auction house with thousands of used hardware/software items.  They have a "wanted" page if there is not currently a version of Director available.

4.- Try Aysemetrix Toolbook also.  Just as pricey but a used version may be available.

5.- Try shareware.  There are thousands of programs out there that are high quality.

6.- MS Visual Basic is pretty cheap compared to Director or Toolbook.

More information about your proposed program would certainly help define the best programs available for your needs.

I guess my question was more about what sorts of design software would be compatible with the Windows API. Nonetheless, you've given me much help. Thanks!
