What is the error message? What exact set of commands did you execute? Please read the posting guide before posting and provide the information it asks you to.

If the error is something like:

> install.views("Econometrics")
Error: could not find function "install.views"

Then you forgot to load the package for use in R. Try:

library(ctv)
install.views("Econometrics")

And, if this was the case, the text you quoted below your message contained the solution:

                    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

If this isn't the case, then follow the posting guide and provide us with more information.
