Try ObjectAda 7.0 for Windows from Aonix, formerly Thomson Software Products.

VisualAda? Borland Ada? No way! These are lay-man tools. If you thinking of
doing serious software engineering, Visual and Borland may not be the
ideal tools.

  Also look at CLAW, a visual Ada development for Windows 95/NT from RR
  Software which works with ObjectAda, GNAT, and RR's own Janus compiler,
  and will probably work with the Ada 95 NT  compilers from DDC-I and
  Rational when those compilers are released.

  I think both ObjectAda and CLAW will be demonstrated at Tri-Ada.

  Additionally, someone from IBM told me at the last STC that VisualAge
  supported Ada.  In fact, I think VisualAge supports the Ada 95 compiler
  from OC Systems.  Ralph Crafts, if he is looking in, can confirm this.

There seems to be no such announcement at present, although I would
be very interested to see one.  Idle speculation leads me to believe
that anyone interested in introducing anything Ada would be wise to
do it in time for the Tri-Ada conference.

This sounds very intriguing. What exactly do mean by 'it supports Ada' ?
Does it mean one can use the GUI or does it mean that one can use the
libraries and GUI-builders, .... etc ?

CU,
