I love Eiffel, I used it at work to produce a medical pump, and use it at home on my Gnu/Linux laptop. However I also wish to use it at work, a school, with the kids, On MS-windows. The teachers do not have access to admin passwords, and the msi installer is insisting on admin privileges, even when I try to install to a non privileged directory. I tried the zip version, I can unzip it but can not get it to work. I have searched but find no useful instructions. There is an install.readme in the zip, but it point to a web page telling us how to install the msi.
