Re: [R] Problem when building a test R package on PC

I don't know the problem per se, but I can say this. In the past, I used the Rossi example and wasn't able to build an R package for Windows. I also explored other resources on the web and came to a similar halt.

The only solution for me was to read the R manual and follow the Murdoch instructions on his web site (link below). I think staying with the canonical guides for this is the only way to get a build done properly.
