I am using R-1.9.1 with windows 2000 and trying to build a package. However,
when I issue the command:

RCMD build --binary BSDA

I get:

>>> Building/Updating help pages for package 'BSDA'

     Formats: chm
hhc: not found
cp: cannot stat `C:/R191/R191/JUNK/BSDA/chm/BSDA.chm': No such file or direc
make[1]: *** [chm-BSDA] Error 1
make: *** [pkg-BSDA] Error 2
*** Installation of BSDA failed ***

My path is:

.;C:\RStools;C:\MinGW\bin;C:\perl\bin;C:\texmf\miktex\bin;C:\Rstools\zip.exe; C:\Rstools\unzip.exe;C:\HTMLws\hhc.exe;C:\R191\R191\bin;%SystemRoot%\system32; %SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem;C:\Program Files\CommonFiles\AdaptecShared\System;
C:\Program Files\ggobi;C:\Program Files\R\rw1091\library\Rggobi\libs

(HTML Help Workshop lives in- "C:\HTMLws\hhc.exe")

I have the directory for HTML Help workshop in MkRules set as:

# Where does 'HTML Help Workshop' live? (unused if compiled HTML help is # not requested. Spaces allowed.)

After I issue RCMD build --binary BSDA and get the error messages, if I go to
`C:/R191/R191/JUNK/BSDA/chm/BSDA.hhp' and manually compile the file (with HTML Help

workshop) then issue the command RCMD build --binary BSDA again...the package builds
without problems. Any ideas what I am doing wrong? Thanks in advance for the help.
