[R] .Rprofile under Windoze.

Well I see your point, but let say I would like to load some of my 
functions, libraries I use, some dataset, and set the lattice theme 
to my preferred version.

As I work on different problems and each problem has its separate 
directory I used to copy .Rprofile from one directory to another, but 
recently I find more convenient just to copy my Rprofile.site from 
one version of R to newly installed. Then I am sure I have always the 
same startup regardless of problem I am working on. Am I wrong? Is 
there some other recommended way?

Although I do not have write permission to registry and to some of 
root directories, thank goodness (and Rcore development team :-), I 
am able to install R elsewhere and use it without some sophisticated 

Best regards
