Unix/Linux Users:

EiffelStudio supports gcc on most platforms and the native cc compiler if it is an ANSI C compiler.

Microsoft Windows Users

EiffelStudio supports Microsoft and MinGW compilers on Microsoft Windows.

Microsoft Visual C++ Users

By default the installation program will set in the registry keys the ISE_C_COMPILER key to msc.

EiffelStudio supports only version 14.0 and higher of the Microsoft Visual C++ environment. This is available in Visual Studio 2005 or higher revision, or in version of the Windows SDK 6.1 or higher.

EiffelStudio will automatically detect the location of the C compiler.

MinGW Users:

By default the installation program will set in the registry keys the ISE_C_COMPILER key to mingw.

In versions as late as 6.6, there is a restriction that prevents the use of EiffelCOM with the MinGW compiler.

Changing your C compiler on Windows

You can do it in either of two different ways.

You can manually edit the registry key HKLM\Software\ISE\EiffelNN and change the value of the ISE_C_COMPILER string key to either msc or mingw depending upon the effect you desire.

Alternatively, you can set the environment variable ISE_C_COMPILER to either msc or mingw.
