there are cmake/FindEigen[23].cmake files in the development branch (but not in the 2.0.x branch, i dont know why). I don't know if it works with windows.. See here to download them:

Under windows, i dont 'install' eigen, i just copy the files somewhere, and point my compiler to this place (using a -I statement for gcc). This is quite easy. There's no need to link to a library as eigen is only made include files ('template library'). I'm not a windows expert though, so maybe others have better way of doing.

(As a side note, you'll notice that several people involved with eigen are French)
