First question: is this the right mailing list to discuss installation problems?

if yes:
(Windows XP professional environment )
Installing a second packege after the first causes an error:



> utils:::menuInstallLocal()

package 'RMySQL' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked updating HTML package descriptions
> utils:::menuInstallLocal()

package 'DBI' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked Warning: unable to move temporary installation 'C:\Programme\R\R-2.6.1\library\file3d6c4ae1\DBI' to 'C:\Programme\R\R-2.6.1\library\DBI'
updating HTML package descriptions

but installing DBI first causes the same error but than with RMySQL:



> utils:::menuInstallLocal()

package 'DBI' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked updating HTML package descriptions
> utils:::menuInstallLocal()

package 'RMySQL' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked Warnung: unable to move temporary installation 'C:\Programme\R\R-2.6.1\library\file3d6c4ae1\RMySQL' to 'C:\Programme\R\R-2.6.1\library\RMySQL'
updating HTML package descriptions

The directory C:\Programme\R\R-2.6.1\library\file3d6c4ae1\ is not present ...

I tried a several times to restart the Rgui no without saving the workspace and tried to install the package again no change. The last time I saved the Workspace and got a success after installing the package:
>

but the initial problem is still there

> library(DBI)
> library(RMySQL)
Error in dyn.load(file, ...) :
  cannot load shared library
'C:/Programme/R/R-2.6.1/library/RMySQL/libs/RMySQL.dll' LoadLibrary failure: module not found (Remark translated message)
