Re: [Rd] Package Installation in RGui (PR#7262)

I think this is a FAQ, hence not appropriate on ANY mailing list:

Please read a) The R for Windows FAQs, Section (currently 3.8) "update.packages() fails" and b) note that VR is a package bundle, hence nothing dubious if library(VR) fails. Also, if package MASS has been loaded, you cannot update the VR bundle.
