You altready got useful help but you are not accepting it.

Please read the manual and follow the advice given there (for R-release in Section C.5), as Brian asked you already. If something is not clear enough, tell us what you do not understand. Saying that it does not work if you do not follow the advice is not helpful at all for people who try to help!
