QuestionLooking for a programming language to use PinmemberSyntax4216-Sep-12 23:32 
I am looking for suggestions on a programming language to use. I wish to write a couple programs for Windows 7/Vista/XP (maybe not XP if it is an issue) but I would like to do it with minimal extra learning involved.
 
I want a simple Windows client program to be able to accept data inputs from the user and store it on the hard drive. At some point, that data must be transmitted to a server across the internet. I do not expect the data size to be over one kilobyte. The server program must accept the data and store it in a database. The client may also download configuration settings from the server.
 

Some features I am looking for are:
 
- Free or low-cost programming environment is a must.
- An no-install executable for the compiled client program is preferred, but not completely necessary.
- The programming language should be easy to learn. Details below.
- Faster creation of the programs helps. I don't have a lot of free time between college and work.
- The server's database should be one that is commonly used in the industry.
 

I have a rough understanding of C++ from a couple college courses I took a few years ago. I also worked with Visual Basic back when Windows 98 was the latest OS. Creating Windows programs now seems a lot more complex than I remember from using Visual Basic. I have tried using Visual Studio Express C++ and it seems more complex than what I need.
 
Thanks in advance for the suggestions.
