Has anyone successfully used Rcmd install or Rcmd check on Windows Vista? I have been successfully been running R itself, just not Rcmd install and Rcmd check.

Rcmd check fails, the Ryacas.Rcheck it creates is read-only, I don't have permission to delete it and I have to reset the permissions on it just to delete it.

With Rcmd install I am getting the following which looks like I am running into permissions problems and, of course, these also show up in Rcmd check.

I had installed R into C:\Program Files\R\R-2.6.0 and my library location is in C:/Users/... as seen below.

I found I had to set tmpdir and R_LIBS appropriately to run Rcmd check and install to even get this far.

Removing 'C:/Users/ggroth/Documents/R/win-library/2.6/Ryacas' Can't read C:/Users/ggroth/Documents/R/win-library/2.6/Ryacas/doc: Invalid argument at C:\PROGRA~1\R\R-26~1.0/bin/install line 434 Can't remove directory
