I m contact you because i need to develop a windows app and i don’t know which progamming language learn to create it.
This app needs to :
- be permanently executed on a pc where a user will have to choose on a graphical interface between several options which once selected will have to launch another software and continue to running in the background to close this software after a certain time
- send and receive informations from multiple external devices
- manage the sound and what is shown on the screen

thanks in advance for the help.
I think you guess that i’m a beginner in programming so if you can propose a good formation on this language i will be grateful.

What I have tried:

i have nothing done at this time i prefer to not learn a language that will be useless for my needs.

What is your knowledge in matter of programming ?

From the description of your problem I would suggest C# and .NET is what you need to learn. However, the application you want to create is not going to be just a few hours work.

So start with a good C# book, or introductory tutorial on the internet. Take a look at .NET Book Zero by Charles Petzold[^] for a good introduction to .NET. And the full online documentation can be found at Windows Forms for .NET documentation | Microsoft Docs[^].
