Thanks to Duncan Murdoch and Prof. Ripley for the previous answers. I apologize as I was not updated with the R version. Now with R 2.12.0 alpha the package builds [Windows XP] but it still fails when checking:

---
C:\home\javier\Documents\hydrology\development>R CMD check hydrosim
* using log directory
'C:/home/javier/Documents/hydrology/development/hydrosim.Rcheck'
* using R version 2.12.0 alpha (2010-09-28 r53056)
* using platform: i386-pc-mingw32 (32-bit)
* using session charset: ISO8859-1
* checking for file 'hydrosim/DESCRIPTION' ... OK
* this is package 'hydrosim' version '1.0-0'
* checking package dependencies ... OK
* checking if this is a source package ... OK
Error in system2("file", "--version", TRUE, TRUE) : '"file"' not found
Execution halted

C:\home\javier\Documents\hydrology\development>file
"file" no se reconoce como un comando interno o externo,
programa o archivo por lotes ejecutable.
---

As you may guess, the above means "'file' is not recognized as an internal
or external command, operable program or batch file".

Could you help with this? Perhaps the string "file" should have been
substituted by a file name elsewhere before? Could the white spaces in
"C:\Archivos de programa\..." be the source of the problem?

Thanks again,

Javier
