Re: [Rd] Windows Vista Issues

Hi Dominick,

No offence intended, but I have been running R (presently 2.5.1.patched) on a Vista (Home Basic) machine without a hitch since March 2007. Initially I had to turn off "User Account Control" to install new packages, but that was a known issue. I still run it that way, though it's not necessary anymore (to have a truly smooth R). You really don't need it switched on if you have decent anti-virus stuff &c.
