In our recent discussion of prototyping tools most of the
recormendations (e.g. Axure) were focused on Web sites and
applications. I work in a (Windows) desktop environment and wonder if
anyone has experience with Axure-like tools that work for desktop
applications?

you can use Axure for desktop apps - i have. however, then you might want to
consider something like GUI Studio. it has a nice set of UI widgets and has
a "simulator" that allows you to take your UI elements and play them back to
simulate the user experience. it's not as flexible or as general purpose as
Axure but worth considering.

Thanks, I'll take another look at Axure. I tried their site demo and
it was all about "site maps" and "pages" so I just stopped watching.
Do you have a link for GUI Studio or should I just google it?
