Illumination Software Creator is an object-oriented application development environment. Its stated goal is to allow users to create new applications without ever having to type a single line of "code".

Tutorials for using can be found here, under the "Learn" tab (via Wayback Machine).

No idea. Author hosted a version 5 on their website at one point, as well as a version 6 beta I believe it was. Unfortunately, their current site no longer seems to have any info on the program.

Don't suppose they left source code for this environment behind as well? Shame if not, seems a neat idea.... a more grown-up version of Scratch perhaps

Although this software is less than 10 years old, the developer no longer exists, and these are the Free versions as provided on their own (now defunct) website.
