Dear Olivier,

I had the same problem the other day.
It is important that you set the PATH in the right order.
I use the Rtools set from http://www.murdoch-sutherland.com/Rtools/ and created a little  batch file to set the PATH in the right order, please see below:

SET PRG=C:\myProgrammes
SET R_PATH=%PRG%\R\R-2.5.1\bin
SET PATH=%PRG%\Perl\bin\;%PRG%\Rtools\bin;%PRG%\Rtools\perl\bin;%PRG%\Rtools\MinGW\bin;%PRG%\GTK\bin;%PRG%\MiKTeX2.6\miktex\bin;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows;C:\Windows\System32\Wbem;c:\cygwin\bin;%PRG%\HTMLHelpWorkshop;%R_PATH%
Rcmd build --binary --use-zip %1

Kind regards,

Subject: [R] Problem with RCMD CHECK (or BUILD)

Dear all,

I have a problem with R CMD CHECK (R 2.6.0 on Windows XP)

Even if I use R CMD CHECK on the windlgs library I get:

* using log directory 'C:/PROGRA~1/R/RProgram/src/library/windlgs.Rcheck'

* using ARGUMENT '

' __ignored__  R version 2.6.0 (2007-10-03)

* checking for file 'windlgs/DESCRIPTION' ... OK

* this is package 'windlgs' version '1.1.0'

* checking package dependencies ... ERROR

Pendant le démarrage - Warning messages:

1: In library(package, lib.loc = lib.loc, character.only = TRUE, logical.return = TRUE,  :

  aucun package nommé 'NULL

' n'est trouvé

2: package NULL

 in options("defaultPackages") was not found

See the information on DESCRIPTION files in the chapter 'Creating R

packages' of the 'Writing R Extensions' manual.

Any idea?

Thank you.
