Welcome to a reason I don't do desktop and server development anymore.

The truth is I've only ever done flow diagrams for embedded code.

To verify desktop applications, rather than design a flow diagram, I design a test matrix. My functional requirements basically dictate the tests.

If you really must diagram your software's behavior, you could use UML, but it won't make things easier, just more comprehensible because anyone with a UML background could understand it.
UML - Behavioral Diagram vs Structural Diagram[^]

Adding: To my mind this is the difference between programming realtime systems and programming non-realtime systems - realtime systems are predictable enough to diagram. As a rough rule of thumb anyway.
