The eiR package installed just fine in Linux (Linux Mint 17.3 64 bit Xfce).

Thank you for any assistance you might be able to provide.

eiR is not supported on windows. That's why there is no binary version, and why it's not surprising that you can't get it to build from source. Not sure/don't remember why this is, maybe the eiR maintainer will chime in and let us know.

Thank you for your quick and helpful response! I should have realized that eiR was not supported on Windows, but your comment has saved me from a great deal of further frustration. When I wish to run eiR, I will do it in linux, where it installs with no apparent issues.

I am the maintainer for eiR. As Dan mentioned, eiR currently relies on some code that will not compile on windows so it is not supported there. I am working on a new version of eiR that will replace this library and then hopefully it will then be supported on windows. This will be at least a few months out though.
