Underscore in package name: abind_1.1-0.tar.gz

You might have a 00lock file in your library dir now that you have to delete before further processing .....

  1. Capitalization!!!
  2. underscore in package name!!!

Hence the following sghould be sufficient (called from c:\):

   R CMD INSTALL abind_1.1-0.tar.gz

or full:

   R CMD INSTALL -l c:/progra~1/r/rw2010/library/ c:/abind.1.1-0.tar.gz
