Dear BioConductor gurus,

On a Windows XP (SP2) machine, when a non-administrator
user try to load the package affy (R 2.0.1, bioconductor 1.5),
the following error message appears:

 local({pkg <- select.list(sort(.packages(all.available = TRUE)))
+ if(nchar(pkg)) library(pkg, character.only=TRUE)})
Loading required package: Biobase 
Loading required package: tools 
Welcome to Bioconductor 
         Vignettes contain introductory material.  To view, 
         simply type: openVignette() 
         For details on reading vignettes, see
         the openVignette help page.
Loading required package: reposTools 
Error in file(file, "wb") : unable to open connection
In addition: Warning message: 
cannot open file `C:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2001/library/liblisting.Rda' 
Error: package 'reposTools' could not be loaded

The funny thing is the above liblisting.Rda is in fact accessible to the user.

Does anyone know what is the problem?

Thank you.
