Visual NPL provides you with the opportunity to give your software a whole new personality with high sizzle Windows screens and the ability to "control the controls" with unparalleled ease. Now you can go one step further with Instant Vinny!

Instant Vinny gives a true Windows look and feel to much of your existing applications.


Instant Vinny works with Vinny to provide a way to deal with the 80% of your screens only viewed occasionally by the end-user. Instant Vinny allows you to deliver your existing screens in a Windows container with the addition of buttons and the ability to add color. The benefit is the ability to release your product without updating every single screen.

Instant Vinny is not a tool for developing new applications using Visual NPL, but rather a mechanism designed to simplify moving existing applications into the Windows environment. It is intended to help NPL developers integrate character based applications into a graphical Visual Basic environment with little time and effort, and can be used in conjunction with the more extensive Visual NPL screen development product. For more details, see the attached product data sheet.


  • MS-Windows 3.1 or greater (Windows 95 or Windows NT recommended)
  • NPL for MS-Windows Revision 4.22.21 or greater
  • Visual NPL 2.0 or greater
  • Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 (16-bit version)


Instant Vinny is now a standard part of the existing Visual NPL 2.0 package and will be automatically shipped to any current Vinny 2 licensee. It is also available on our web site for existing Vinny 2 users at
