R v2.3.0 patched from today: Was just checking out the RSetReg.exe application after reading about it in "R for Windows FAQ":

"After installation you can add the Registry entries in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE by running RSetReg.exe in the bin folder, and remove them by running this with argument /U. Note that this requires administrative privileges and neither sets up nor removes the file associations."

I tried RSetReg /? and erased(!) my R settings:

>RSetReg /?

unregistering R ... succeeded

>RSetReg /G

unregistering R ... succeeded

>RSetReg /foobar

unregistering R ... succeeded

>RSetReg anyargument

unregistering R ... succeeded

It is easy enough to get the default settings back, by


but a simple check for '/U' would be better.
