Thanks for the reply.

Yes, you are quite correct, but:

> install.packages('rJava')
Warning in install.packages("rJava") :
  argument 'lib' is missing: using
'C:\Users\Stephen\Documents/R/win64-library/2.11' --- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session --- Warning: unable to access index for repository http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin/bin/windows64/contrib/2.11 trying URL 'http://cran.case.edu/bin/windows64/contrib/2.11/rJava_0.8-5.zip' Content type 'application/zip' length 658913 bytes (643 Kb) opened URL

package 'rJava' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded packages are in

        C:\Users\Stephen\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmpcy0hAb\downloaded_packages
>

install.packages('C;\Users\Stephen\AppData\Local/Temp/Rtmpcy0hAb\downloaded_ $
Error: '\U' used without hex digits in character string starting "C;\U"
>

So, obviously, at this point I am attempting something that R does not like.

You failed to install an appropriate Java version.
