Christian,
You need to state which packages you are using. If you are using the latex function in the Hmisc library, I have to admit to putting more work into that for Linux/Unix than for Windows. The functions such as print.latex and related ones need modification for Windows (volunteers welcome) or you need to carefully set up your system so that the latex and xdvi commands are in your system path and also install the cygwin utilities (to get cat, cd, etc.). The functions do check options(latexcmd= xdvicmd= dvipscmd=) which you can easily specify for your LaTeX installation (and put in .Rprofile) when your executables are not "latex" "xdi" "dvips".
Note that to use latex just for creating the .tex file (e.g., w <- latex(myobject,fi='/tmp/my.tex') you only need to get the "latex" executable working with latex( ). -Frank Harrell
