Construct-like tool for non-games?

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

Hey there friends,

I´m digging more and more into normal app development besides my work on games with Construct.
As a game engine it´s kind of limited in it´s opportunities and I would like to ask you if there are equal tools for non-game programming.
Drag and Drop, easy events etc. but with a focus on "regular" Software and non game apps.

I know that it´s kind of strange to ask for foreign software but ...yeahh it´s a different field of programming I guess :)

Hope you get what I would like to know :D haha

Thanks dudes,
Beav

I do not understand because of poor translation 'google translate". Can write for easier text.

I'll probably get shot for saying it, but...Multimedia Fusion 2 / Fusion 2.5. Unlike Construct, Game Maker, Stencyl, etc. it's geared towards game AND application development, and is surprisingly powerful in that regard.

MONO + VB.NET, that language is very easy to use and get into for beginners :)

(Or you can use Visual Basic Express which is free too).

As for pure click-and-drag, basically the other tools for making games sadly. Construct Classic was pretty powerful for that kinda stuff too.
"Construct 4 lets YOU make advanced games! (but not play them)" Construct Classic - Examples Kit Dropbox is a pile of trash and if you need my old files PM me! :)

Thanks for all these tips guys :-)
I guess C2 seems to be a good solution then, even though you need to tweak it every here and there! :-P

I don't understand...
You need to have been using C2 for a long time and you need to know it very well to say that.
And what kind of a game do you want to make with an engine like C2? This is important here.
