Dear Jason,

Thank you very much, the first problem is solved.
It was a corrupted file. After downloading a new version rterm works!

The second question:
I was trying to set the working directory while I'm calling a script
with Rterm.exe from the command line.
Something like
c:\Program Files\R\rw1090\bin\rterm.exe --vanilla "workingdir=c:/data/"
<test.r --args "Arg1" "Arg2"

Thank's again

Weird. Did you install in C:\Program Files\R\rw1090\? On my XP
it did, and rterm is valid. The above works from a command prompt,
provided I wrap the executable path and name in quotes. Failing that,
it a corrupt binary install?

Here's the md5 of my (working) R-1.9.0, downloaded from CRAN (NOT the
patched version, and not built by me)

C:\Program Files\R\rw1090\bin> md5sum.exe Rterm.exe
2565cd848bbd86b964624a0490352da2 *Rterm.exe

Inside R: setwd("your/path/here") With the usual warning about using
slashes, or "\\" slashes (doubled). I just stick with "/".
