Another possibility is to put Rcmd.bat from the batch file collection

   http://cran.r-project.org/contrib/extra/batchfiles/

in your path. It will use the registry to find R so you won't have to modify your path (nor would you have to remodify it every time you install a new version of R which is what you would otherwise have to do):

cd \MyPackages
Rcmd install example
