I'm sorry to waste bandwidth. I re-read the console message for the tenth time and finally noticed R was looking in rw2001pat for libraries. Looking at my Env vars I see I set R_LIBS to look there. Changed R_LIBS, fixed problem. DOH! So now if I want to use several versions of R simultaneously, what do I do. I set R_LIBS so it would look also in C:/R/extra for some added packages.

Thanks and sorry again,

Subject: R 2.1.0 for Windows installation error? atanh not in R.dll?

Could someone please tell me what I did wrong to create this message or what I should do to correct this problem?

I downloaded 2.1.0 Windows binary and installed into C:/R/rw2010, using the installer. I ran md5check.exe in C:/R/rw2010/bin/ and got "No errors."

The problem is this:

When I start up Rgui.exe from its shortcut (target= C:\R\rw2010\bin\Rgui.exe --save -sdi, Start in C:\R\rw2010), I get a message box with:

R Console: Rgui.exe - Entry Point Not Found The procedure entry point atanh could not be located in the dynamic link library R.dll.

and the console shows:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :

        unable to load shared library 'C:/R/rw2001pat/library/stats/libs/stats.dll':   LoadLibrary failure: The specified procedure could not be found. During startup - Warning message:
package stats in options("defaultPackages") was not found

I also tried 2.1.0 patched and got the same results. Of course, I cannot do much without the stats package.

stats.dll does exist in that location:
davidr@rho-trader06 /cygdrive/c/R/rw2010/library/stats/libs $ ls -lA

language R              

I do have several other versions of R installed in other subdirectories under C:/R/. I have searched the archives to no avail.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.
