You don't. You're one of the marketing droids from PC-Soft
To everyone here : such interventions are a well-known part of PC-Soft
(the company that sells the "product" discussed here) marketing
strategy. We've seen quite a lot of such posts on the windew-users
mailing list and newsgroup.

Ho yes ? Even if the boss finally decides that he'd better trust his
team than marketing droids ?

Yes, sooo good and fun. A good and fun unusable clickodrom nightmare
with a good and fun dumbed-down basic as language and a good and fun

I've never met a programmer that "loved" Windev. I've met some
"programmers" that where able to bear with it mostly because they didn't
even knew anything else, but even these guys didn't "love" trying to
make this crap do something useful.
Heck, compared to PC-Soft, one could find that Microsoft's marketing
strategy is based on delivering smart, usable, cleanly debugged products
and being helpful to users...
python -c "print '@'.join(['.'.join([w[::-1] for w in p.split('.')]) for
p in 'onurb at xiludom.gro'.split('@')])"
