Dear All,

	I have downloaded the htmlhelp.exe from InterNet. Install it into the path "C:\Program Files\HTML Help Workshop\". I add this path into the "Control Panel -> System -> Advanced -> Environment Variables -> Path -> Variable". 
	But it still exist error.
	---------- Making package example ------------
  	  adding build stamp to DESCRIPTION
	  installing R files
	  installing data files
	  installing man source files
	  installing indices
	  not zipping data
	  installing help

>>> Building/Updating help pages for package 'example'
Formats: text html latex example chm d text html latex example e text html latex example f text html latex example g text html latex example hhc: not found cp: cannot stat `D:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2011/example/chm/example.chm': No such file or directory make[1]: *** [chm-example] Error 1 make: *** [pkg-example] Error 2 *** Installation of example failed *** Removing 'D:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2011/library/example' Restoring previous 'D:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2011/library/example'

I don't know why it can not find the "hhc" file. Please tell me which step is wrong.
Thank you for helping me!
^_^

hhc.exe is the Microsoft help compiler. You have to download it and put it somewhere in your path.

Into the "MyRpackages" folder I write a R library named "example", include "DESCRIPTION" file and "R" folder. In the "R" folder, the "example" file just content very simple code as the previous mail said.
