Hi, I am installing Excel using package "RExcelInstaller". When I tried to run

installRExcel()

I got this error message:

You don not have the R package rcom installed. The (D)COM server installed which will aloow you to use the background server in RExcel.
Since rcom is not installed, foreground mode will be unavailable.

You may continue with the installation, but in most circumstances you probably should cancel current installation, install the package rcom properly (do not forget to run the commands
  library(rcom)
  comRegisterRegistry()
immediately after installation)
and after that run this installer once again

But rcom package was installed without any problem, somehow the installer keeps saying that rcom is not installed.

Any suggestions?

Thanks

John
