Hi Dhaarini,

You need to install a package before you can use it. The error message 
there is no package called 'hgu133a' is supposed to indicate to you that 
the package isn't installed.

In addition, the package you want is now called hgu133a.db, so you want

paths <- aafPathway(probeids, "hgu133a.db")
