How To Build Windows Software Without Any Coding Knowledge

Actually as you explore this program I’m going to tell you about, you will realize you will have to learn how to use and write computer code. But, this program has enough in it to help you along that road of learning how to build Windows software and coding.

I began using this program back in 2009. The one and only software program I built with it is, Wintrol 5.1.

I’m not here to tell you what Wintrol does, if you want to know about Wintrol you can visit the Wintrol page and download it from here.

I really do love this Windows software program builder.
Neosoftware really has something on the competition.

The NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7 isn’t free, it will set you back $149.00 (USD), there’s a free trial version if you just want to try it first.

With NeoBook Rapid Application Builder, “even inexperienced users can quickly combine combine text, pictures, sound, video, Flash animation, HTML content, Internet links, databases, special effects and other elements to create interactive, professional software programs.”

NeoBook Rapid Application Builder version 5.8.7

“Completed NeoBook projects can be compiled into a compact, self-contained Windows application (exe) or screen saver (scr) for easy distribution. No players, special drivers, licenses or additional software are required to view compiled applications. NeoBook created applications look and act just like real Windows programs, so no one need know that you didn’t toil for years learning Java or C++.”

The System Requirements for NeoBook are as follows:

Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit). A hard disk with 20 MB free space. Mouse or other Windows-supported pointing device. Windows-supported sound card (optional)

Apps created with NeoBook will run under:
Windows 2000, XP, Vista, Windows 7, 8 or 10 (32/64-bit).

“NeoBook works with a series of plug-ins, the plug-ins are specially designed components that can be installed along with NeoBook to provide additional functions not found in the basic program. Properly designed plug-ins are extremely fast and their use virtually transparent. Once installed, plug-in functions appear in NeoBook’s Select an Action list along with the program’s native commands.”

Alexander of France is quoted saying, “I studied Neobook at school when I was 15 and then I bought it. Now I am 19 and I work every day on it and I earn money with Neobook. According to me, Neobook is more than a software, it is a DREAM, it is the best developing software over the world!”

All that talk from technology website’s and all the “How To Learn Computer Code”, how to’s out there have nothing on this program. NeoBook is where you want to start learning how to build computer software.

What Is Mouse Without Borders?

Well I can tell you what it’s not ;
It’s not a mouse that runs around the world healing other mice in war-torn nations.

Mouse without borders (MWB) is a little software program built by Microsoft so a computer user can have two computers running separately -but- with one mouse and one keyboard controlling both. Once you experience it, you’ll wonder how you got along without it for so long.

As far as I can tell this little -but- tuff program has been out since the early 2000’s, and its talked about very little since then. The program doesn’t appear to need any improvements and or bug fixes. Its perfect just as it is.

Here’s what it does: First you have to install it onto both computers at the same time.
(make sure you’re connected to the Internet)
-mouse without borders works with a smartphone’s hotspot connection as well-

Once installed follow the instructions, the last step you enter a security code and the computer name you want to share the keyboard and mouse with.
From your secondary computer close that window.
Now from the system tray find (MWB) right-click on it, choose setting’s, a window will pop up with the security code you need. From your main computer enter that code, if the computer name isn’t correct on each computer MWB will not connect.
Click apply, and close the window.
That’s it, you should now be able to move your mouse from one computer to the other, and share the clipboard between the two, plus share the keyboard.

The setup process isn’t really that hard. Just keep trying if you miss the connection the first time. I love this program.

Here’s how to get your copy of Mouse Without Borders.
Or try this direct download link.

Information coming from the XWidget community has flared up a little in recent days.
News of XWidget version 2.0 has been released. Hints indicate XWidget will get a new icon.

It is to be expected that version 2.0 will be released this coming March.

Change’s for XWidget appear to be what has been missing from the current version 1.93. A buggy version is no ones want. A 90 percent code improvement is something to get excited about.

– Support 3D layer with smooth animation.
– New UI, more easy to use.

Will XWidget keep its release date headline?


< (release date confirmed)




Many at the XWidget forum are eagerly awaiting for the new version, we’ll just have to continue to see if the new version release will arrive on time.

Personally I’m looking forward to the new version. XWidgets potential is something to put faith in. It really can help your desktop enhancement experience.

If you have any interest in learning how to make your own widgets (yes, you can create your own style of widgets, with XWidget) for your personal computer system, you will have to have a little bit of knowledge with “JavaScript Code” (.js, if you are going to create a heavy resource widget.

But, you still can create and or run the default widgets without any .js file.

I tested XWidget with the online virus scanner , over a dozen anti-virus engines
passed the freeware program. However, when I installed it onto my system, AVG detected XWidget as a virus. I allowed the program to install, knowing this was a false positive.

For now what we have is version, you can get it here –
And if you like you can download the Star Trek Starfleet Folder Launcher widget I created for my new collection of personally made widgets.
