Hi there. I want to make a quick and simple graphical interface to configure another program. I was thinking about using WinAPI since i already know some of it, but it's really ugly, and i hear all this talk about some great high level API's like Python, the .NET framework, GTK, and more, so i thought i'de take some time to learn one of the new API's. This is where you guys come in, i'de like you to give me your opinions on what API i should use. I am looking for something i can learn very quickly, it doesn't need to have many features, what i need to so is simple, doesn't need to perform very well, what i need to do will fairly simple. I guess this is all, thanks. =)

If you need to pound out a Win32 GUI, then you really can't beat .NET for drag-and-drop app development with a couple of lines of code. You'll need the .NET redist on each machine that will run it, however. That may or may not pose a problem.
