Dear list members,

I've run into a problem with R CMD INSTALL under Windows Vista and R 2.8.0:

C:\Users\John Fox\workspace>c:\R\R-2.8.0\bin\R CMD INSTALL car installing to ''

Removing '/car'

Apparently, the package isn't being installed to the standard library location.

The same command works perfectly fine under R 2.7.2:

C:\Users\John Fox\workspace>c:\R\R-2.7.2\bin\R CMD INSTALL car installing to 'c:/R/R-2.7.2/library'

  . . .

I see in the Windows CHANGES file that Rcmd.exe has been modified. Do I have to set an environment variable that I didn't have to set before?

Any help would be appreciated.
