I have setup R 1.9.1 on my Dell laptop running windows XP. I have installed it to C:\R\rw1091. Rgui runs fine, but Rcmd fails if run with parameters (i.e. install). The windows dialog box cheerfully says "R for Windows front-end has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience." Running the visual C++ debugger informs me that there is an unhandled exception in rcmd.exe. I have seen similar problems in R-help and have tried to follow the advice given, but the earlier problems occurred for Rgui.exe and were overcome by setting the HOMEPATH variable. I have tried this and set every variable possible to ensure no blank spaces appear in any of the paths. But still I get this error. Any further suggestions would be appreciated.
