The R-based version of R CMD build doesn't work for me on Windows:

   E:\biocbld\bbs-2.7-bioc>R\bin\R CMD build meat\Biobase

The old Perl-based version (R\bin\R CMD obuild) does work with no problem.

My R version is:

   E:\biocbld\bbs-2.7-bioc>R\bin\R --version    R version 2.12.0 Under development (unstable) (2010-06-07 r52225)    Copyright (C) 2010 The R Foundation for Statistical Computing    ISBN 3-900051-07-0    R is free software and comes with ABSOLUTELY NO WARRANTY.    You are welcome to redistribute it under the terms of the    GNU General Public License version 2.    For more information about these matters see    http://www.gnu.org/licenses/.

I'm on Windows Server 2003 R2 (32-bit). I have the same problem on Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise (64-bit) (using the same revision of R 2.12.0). I don't have any problem on Linux or Mac OS X.

FYI, this problem is causing most of the Bioconductor packages to be red on Windows on our daily build/check report:


OTOH I don't see anything like that on the check summaries for CRAN packages:


Maybe because CRAN only runs R CMD check which is still Perl-based?
