Dear all:
Just to make sure I am on the same page as everyone else. 
I just got a new computer and had to reinstall MikTex and  of course R and Tinn-R. In order to be able to generate PDF's with Sweave I had to install notepad++ to tell Sweave where Latex.exe and yap.exe where located under MikTex path. So,I have two questions: 
1- Do I need to have a Miktex editor in order to use Sweave? I am not using the editor because I am generating my PDF's from R using Sweave.
2- Is Sweave able to find the path to Latex.exe and yap.exe by itself?
Everything works fine now but I am just want to get it right for future installations.
I'm running on windows xp and have R-2.8.1 installed
Thanks in advance
