Dear all,

I have installed 1.7.0 on my Win XP and want to use MASS. But I get this
error message:

> library(MASS)
Error in namespaceExport(ns, exports) : undefined exports: abbey,
accdeaths, Aids2, Animals, anorexia, austres, bacteria, beav1, beav2,
biopsy, birthwt, ...
Error in library(MASS) : package/namespace load failed

I therefore again downloaded VR.zip. When I extracted the files I always
answered yes to the question of "Would you like to replace the existing file?"

I also "Skip File" MASS.dll because password is needed....?

I've never had this probelm with previous R versions and there is no
problem with other libraries. What have I done wrong?

Thanks in advance for your help!
