    Default Windows based software.

    Hi -

    we are a small php programming firm and are wondering how softwares for windows are done?? i mean we have a online php software which user's can install on their website... kind of a plugin for wordpress and we are trying to do a small windows utility that would connect to the website and fetch data.

    Any tips on where/how to get started?? i really have no idea what language these are done in and how these are build up?

    thanks

    There should be plenty of resources online.

    PHP is run on a webserver, and it's interpreted at runtime. A "real" program is compiled (into machine code, from the source code), not run from the raw code.

    The most common languages for writing software are C++ and Java. There are others.

    yes... i did had a felling and this is something to be done in C++... i am sure it will be much easier for us to hire someone to do this instead or learning C++ myself.

    There are a huge number of resources for everything about making programs. I don't know about "macros" (since they would only exist within some other program), but there will be plenty of resources available such as tutorials or example code, and some template-style code as well, such as basic routines.



    By the way, although it's not usually the best way to go, it is possible to compile PHP into an EXE.
    I've used this and it works:

    Hi, being a software firm doesn't mean that we are to use all our resources for our own needs

    Given that this discussion doesn't seem to be going anywhere (honestly this isn't a forum where we can help too much with non-web-based programming), I think I'm going to the thread. There have been a few spam posts here as well, so that'll stop them from accumulating. If you have more questions, feel free to start a new thread.
