Dear All,

I am trying to analyse Glyco gene chip data using biocobductor (affy 
package). After loading the data I encounter following problem.

Warning message:
cannot open: HTTP status was `403 Forbidden'
Note: http://www.bioconductor.org/repository/devel/package/Win32 does not 
seem to have a valid repository, skipping
Note: You did not specify a download type.  Using a default value of: Win32
This will be fine for almost all users

Error in getCdfInfo(object) : Could not obtain CDF environment, problems 
Specified environment specified did not contain GLYCOv2a520086F
Library - package glycov2a520086fcdf not installed
Data for package affy did not contain GLYCOv2a520086F
Bioconductor - glycov2a520086fcdf not available
In addition: Warning message:
Failed to read replisting at 
http://www.bioconductor.org/repository/devel/package/Win32 in: 
getReplisting(repURL, repFile, method = method)

.cdf file for this chip is not listed on affymetrix site.

Please let me know if this data can be analysed without using cdf file.

Thanks in advance.
