Eiffel for ASP.NET Installation

Eiffel for ASP.NET is available for downloading for free at http://www.eiffel.com . Simply run the file and follow the installer instructions. It is recommended that Internet Information Services (IIS) be deployed on the machine prior to installing Eiffel for ASP.NET. If IIS is not deployed then the installation program will display a warning message box. Click ignore to keep installing the product. Without IIS, ASP.NET pages cannot be loaded and thus the samples will not be installed. It might still be useful to install Eiffel for ASP.NET without IIS if the Eiffel CodeDom Provider is going to be used through other scenarios. If IIS is available then the installer will open an Eiffel ASP.NET page at the end of the installation process. This page contains links to the documentation and samples. The installer will also put links to these documents in the Start menu under 'Programs\Eiffel for ASP.NET x.x' where 'x.x' corresponds to the version number of Eiffel for ASP.NET.
