You're the first I've heard from having problems with 1.6.1, but I did
hear from a couple of people having similar problems with 1.6.0, and
was never able to identify the cause.  I think that it's some
intermittent bug in the installer, or incompatibility with some 3rd
party program (anti-virus?), rather than any real error in the file.
Could you let me know details about your system: what version of
Windows, are you using anti-virus software, anything like that that
might impact on this?

As mentioned in another message, there's a problem with the CHM files
in the rw1061.exe currently on CRAN; I'm planning to upload a new
version later today.  Once that is online the bug might go away.
