Hi there,

I just installed R 2.11.1 on my PC, which runs a Windows XP Home.

The installation is successful, however, when I double click on the R icon, I get the following error message:

R for Windows GUI front-end has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Error signature is:

AppName: rgui.exe	 AppVer: 2.111.52157.0	 ModName: msvcrt.dll
ModVer: 7.0.2600.2180	 Offset: 0000d2b5

I get a gdb, and then gdb the Rgui.exe, I get the following message:

(gdb) run
Starting program: D:\Program Files\R\R-2.11.1\bin/Rgui.exe [New Thread 2460.0xb7c]

The Rterm.exe can run normally. I don't know it's a bug of Rgui or a bug of my system.

Thanks for any help.
