Yes, the installer missed some file(s) in RHOME/bin. When I choose "Message translations", the /bin directory contains the following files.

R.dll
R.exe
RSetReg.exe
Rblas.dll
Rcmd.exe
Rgui.exe
Rlapack.dll
Rproxy.dll
Rterm.exe
Stangle.sh
Sweave.sh
helpPRINT.bat
md5check.exe

When I install without choosing "Message translations", the /bin directory contains the following files.

INSTALL
R.dll
R.exe
REMOVE
RSetReg.exe
Rblas.dll
Rcmd.exe
Rd2dvi.sh
Rd2txt
Rdconv
Rdiff.sh
Rgui.exe
Rlapack.dll
Rprof
Rproxy.dll
Rterm.exe
SHLIB
Sd2Rd
Stangle.sh
Sweave.sh
build
check
helpPRINT.bat
massage-Examples
md5check.exe
