Sara,
Could it be that you have to unzip the package? If you are using a PC you can probably find a free (or trial version) of one of many versions of unzip (e.g. WINZIP). If you are familiar with Unix, unzipping is similar to using TAR. John

    Dear all

    I can not understand how to install the package lpsolve_1.1.9.zip

    I have read the FAQ and the help pages carefully, but it still not clear for me.

    I have tried the following (and obtained the respective error messages):     

>install.packages("c:/ProgramFiles/R/rw2011/library/lpSolve_1.1.9",destdir="
c:/ProgramFiles/R/rw2011/library/lpSolve")

    Mensagem de aviso:

            no package 'c:/Program
Files/R/rw2011/library/lpSolve_1.1.9' at the repositories in: download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd, available = available,     

>install.packages("lpSolve_1.1.9",destdir="c:/ProgramFiles/R/rw2011/library/
lpSolve")

    Erro em download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd, available = available, :

            'destdir' is not a directory

    >install.packages("lpSolve_1.1.9",destdir=NULL)     Mensagem de aviso:

            no package 'lpSolve_1.1.9' at the repositories in: download.packages(pkgs, destdir = tmpd, available = available,

    Could you please tell me how to do that or when can I find a simple example of that kind of installation?

    Thank you so much and sorry for such basic question.

    Sara Mouro
