        It is the first of our application that shows this problem. At least as far as I know.

        The installation of R works without any problem, only the addition of further packages does not. What is the difference between both installation parts? Of course you may ask what is the difference between Windows NT and Windows XP as client system. And you may ask what is the difference between a Windows NT and a Windows 2003 file server?

        Is R using a piece of code that Windows XP sends wrong to a Windows 2003 file server?

        What I did, was "Install packages from local zip files..." interactivly.
