Suppose foo.Rnw is in \a\b and you have placed
MiKTeX in the default place when you installed it
and suppose that when you installed R you did
not prevent it from writing to the reigstry.  Then:

1. Go to the link I gave already, read everything
there, go to the download page and download

2. Unzip that, read the README and
place sweave.bat in \a\b (or anywhere in
your PATH).

3. Press Windows-R to get into Windows console
and type:

cd \a\b
Sweave foo.Rnw

I'm able to run MiKtex by itself and accomplish what I am trying to do, but I want to be able to use the Sweave function from within R (or Tinn-R)and generate my dynamic reports from there. I'm running windows XP and R 2.7.2. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks
