I am trying to install R for Windows, but when I use the installer provided
on CRAN, a number of third-party packages are installed by default (i.e.
lattice, Matrix, codetools, etc.). If R is installed with administrator
privileges, so it's available for all users, non-administrators can't
update those packages. Is there any way to just install R without any
third-party packages, and let individual users install the packages they
