We have been using Eiffel and Eiffel Studio for more than three years as of November 2013. The compiler, IDE, language and method of Eiffel are second to none. The capacity to produce high quality, well engineered, elegant code that is rock solid is well worth the effort to learn. Designing and coding in Eiffel is very fun and rewarding. You will not find a better match to your Computer Science skills anywhere.
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.
