I'm in need of a GUI builder to create a dummy interface I can show at project meetings. I don't need any programming language connections, I don't need it to be working in any way, I only need it to be easy and fast and be able to create a dummy GUI I can stuff into a Powerpoint presentation.

I also need it to be free and working on windows (and for the finished GUI to have the standard windows look).

Any suggestions?

What about Microsoft Visual C# 2008 Express Edition?

You could also look at Sharp Develop.

I was thinking more along the lines of RADvolution Designer (that seems to take care of all the spacing, and general looks) but free.

The two tools I mentioned ARE free, and have WYSIWYG GUI Designers. You can't get much simplier than dragging and dropping controls, editting a few properties, and saying Build.

Anyway... good luck. Maybe there are other free tools that better meet your needs.

Yeah, I was hoping for slightly more automation (I'm using NetBeans GUI designer but it's a lot of manual labor). Thanks for the tip though.
