Synopsis: Installer feature request.

Dear Sir or Madam

Your Eiffel-installer for Windows tells me that no MS Compiler were found. So, the truth is I have an running MS Visual Studio 2005. It would be very very nice if you could put an option into your installer that enables the user for browsing after the compiler. Furthermore it would be great if you could add the "Intel Compiler" to your Compiler Selection. 

Kind regards.

Marcus, thanks for the report. We've fixed the issues surrounding the correction of the messages. The Intel compiler might be worth looking at, but as it requires Visual Studio anyway, users are likely to have access to a C/C++ compiler.

I'll forward this bug report to the compiler team because there is work to be done there to support the Intel compiler. They can follow up with you.
