IBI's MacVector has a nice oligoprogram.  Its not shareware, but someone at
CaseWestern must have a copy of it that you can use (it has hardware and
software protection so you will have to use it on their computer).  I think
that the primer designer part of the program was incorporated after version
4.  I used a beta version of it to design a LOT of oligos while I was at
NIH and all of them worked, which is much better than what happened when I
tried to design them myself.

All of the above may be true, but Cleveland is hardly in the WEST.
