Katrin, did you use the "update from CRAN" option in the Windows GUI version? It is my experience this option does not always succeed in installing the downloaded package. Indeed, when I try to update VR this way, I get an error message concerning MASS.DLL, and the whole process (including other scheduled packages) stops. Maybe this happens when you loaded the MASS library.
However, when this happens to me, I can still open the package (which is still in Windows\temp) using WinZIP, WinRAR or other, and manuall extract the contents into the right folder. Have you tried that?


Pray how did you install it?

should show you the scottish hills races.!!!
