Re: [R] R won't start keeps crashing

OK when I click on the .RData file I get the screen above. Also when I start R from the desktop icon or from select if from programs I get the same result.

The warning message is in focus and I can not move the focus to the GUI. When I either click to dismiss the message of click to close it the whole session shuts down.

So I can not enter the commands you sugested into this corrupt version.

However, when I click on the Canada.Rdata the R session starts and seems to function normally.

Here are the results of the functions you requested. Not sure if they will help given that this version is workfing?
