First of all, this is not my homework, but for the company I work for. This is what happened:
-I created a Java application which was basically a "application launcher". The application contained a simple window which had buttons. These buttons launched other applications.
-I compiled the Java application to native exe, and then burned the application to a CDROM, along with the additional exes that the application was supposed to launch.
-The final product, is that the final compiled exe took about 60 seconds to start up. This is WAY TOO LONG for a product of this sort, which should open up immediately or almost immediately.
-Therefore, my boss asked me to speed up this program in anyway I could. I concluded the best way was to write it in C++ rather than JIT compiled Java (I can't write it in pure Java because the program is supposed to have NO INSTALLATION REQUIREMENTS).
-I read the C++ tutorial on this site in the last days.
-I do not yet understand the graphical aspect of C++ (a form with buttons)
-I have Visual C++ 2010.
-I think I must experiment and learn a lot more before I am able to program windows forms, since I only know the stuff contained in the tutorial on this site.
Anyway... because I consider this program to be quite simple (a simple form with buttons which call other exes), I was wondering if anyone could write it for me.
It would serve as a basic tutorial for me, but also solve this issue where my application will be faster.
Here is a screenshot of the program that I must replicate in C++:
Also, the application should be able to run with an autorun on CDROM and should have no requirements except having Windows, in other words a standalone exe. Also, each button basically just launches another exe file.
EDIT: If you can't write it for me, could you tell me how I would go about writing it? I literally have no clue about windows forms in C++
