Hello, Uwe,
Thank you all for your reply!
I installed binary packages XML_0.97.0.zip by "Install package(s) from local zip
file" and followed instruction in the doc:
 you will have to add the XML/libs
directory to your path.  Putting them into the
directory which contains Rgui.exe and Rterm.exe for this
version of R is probably best.
I then put add the XML/libs directory to director rw1091/bin, but it still gave
messagae like this:
> library("XML")
Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) :
        unable to load shared library
  LoadLibrary failure:  The specified module could not be found.
Error in library("XML") : package/namespace load failed
What should I do now?
