Re: [Rd] Unattended Windows installation of R modified with v2.1.1

Well, rw2011.exe does install the default set of components for me, and nothing has changed in the last few days.

Note that Inno Setup does pick up default options from a previously installed version of R, so that might be the explanation. (It might even do so if one had already been uninstalled: the docs are not clear about this.)

Specifying /COMPONENTS is probably what you want to do to be sure.
