Thanks for the quick response!

While I agree Rcommander is not the same thing as either ESS or RStudio, it
can also be useful as a wrapper when testing out functions and scripts.  I
learned R on it and it's a more comfortable environment for me than ESS. 
(Thank you for writing it!)

Strangely tcltk seems to be functioning just fine on my system. 
tkProgressBar() shows a little horizontal thermometer window with no

The problem comes when I try to load Rcommander.
splines, RcmdrMisc, car, and sandwich all load, but then a dialog box pops
up saying that XLConnect is missing and asking permission to install it.

XLConnect won't install because rJava is apparently unavailable for
XLConnectJars because I need to be root in order to install rJava

So I guess I've just answered my own question - without admin access I won't
have either Rstudio or RCommander.  That's the cost of paying someone else
to maintain our Big Machine as part of a server array.

Thanks again,
