Re: [R] zip package

Dear Sara,

It looks to me as if there are three problems here: (1) Is the zip file for the package really at "c:/ProgramFiles/R/rw2011/library/lpSolve_1.1.9"? That is, isn't there a space in "Program Files"? (2) You have to specify repos=NULL to install from a local zip file, as ?install.packages tells you. (3) You don't seem to be using the destdir argument correctly; you can omit it.

Why not avoid all this and just use the R for Windows menus: Packages -> Install package(s) from local zip files?

I hope this helps,
 John
