Obviously, there's hardly any one right way to write application for Windows. More than enything else,the nature of the application itself should probably dictate the tools.

Hi everyone. I am an English_beginner, I found "Dictate" means "Express orally,or command,control" from a dictionary. I don't know what is "Dictate the tools" It's kind of abstract. Could you tell me ?

    'The nature of the application' should be used to determine which tools are used/ what the tools are.

    The application's nature is 'dictating' what the tools are - it is the controlling factor.
