	It is the first of our application that shows this problem. At least
as far as I know.
	The installation of R works without any problem, only the addition
of further packages does not. What is the difference between both
installation parts? Of course you may ask what is the difference between
Windows NT and Windows XP as client system. And you may ask what is the
difference between a Windows NT and a Windows 2003 file server?
	Is R using a piece of code that Windows XP sends wrong to a Windows
2003 file server?

	>configuration of R (do you have set another library path to install

	>Please tell us the way you tried to install the package.

	What I did, was "Install packages from local zip files..."
