Ill keep my initial post short and see where it leads. Admins, if this post is misfiled, please feel free to move it to the proper sub-forum.
Ill start by saying that I have little current programming experience.
What I have is an old engineering application that currently will not run in windows, the source looks like a batch file to the best of my knowledge, perhaps old VB code. (hard copy not electronic format)
This app does calculations to determine when a product (more information to the person that helps) will fail, based on pressure ratings, bend radius, bend repetitions, tensile strength etc...
Some people have asked me if I wanted a java app or a winforms app. and im not sure which way to go, if theres a simple conversion, or if it truly requires a 100$ / hr programmer.
ANY info greatly appreciated
I can post a snippet of the code for example if needed, but I wont reveal the whole source to anyone other than the person completing the job for me, should someone be willing to help.
