Peter, i tried the file.choose() method of installing from local zip files; its easy to install few packages that way. but you see if there are many packages(say >10 or 12), then i wont be able to install the packages on which the packages that i want to install depend because i guess i cant set dependencies=TRUE by this method.

here is what i tried
i replaced "http://my.local.cran" (code below) in Rprofile.site with "file://C:/R/packages/" and then did

install.packages(c("pkg1", "pkg2", ...),dependencies=TRUE) in R console but dint succeed..

# set a CRAN mirror
 local({r <- getOption("repos")

      r["CRAN"] <- "http://my.local.cran/"

Would Appreciate help
