Hi Marcin,

Sorry for the late reply.  There have been some problems with the MetaData
packages on the Bioconductor site recently (for Windows users), including
the annotation packages (which is how affylmGUI finds out the names of
genes).  I believe they have been resolved now.  So hopefully you will
find that this problem goes away.  affylmGUI tries to automatically
download the required annotation package needed to display gene names in
the toptable if it is not already installed, but if there is a problem
with the automatic installation of the annotation package, you can always
try installing it manually, e.g. try:

This mget command you listed above works for me now.  Are you still having
a problem?

This sort of question really should go to the regular bioconductor mailing
list (bioconductor at stat.math.ethz.ch), rather than bioc-devel.
