Hi List,

I am trying to learn something about the exchange facilities between R and Windows Application with the RDCOMClient package from (http://www.omegahat.org/RDCOMClient/) and I have faced 2 problems:
1.  I could not follow the link for the binary version of SWinTypeLibs package on the site, (as it has given me a restricted permission message), but I downloaded it by searching it on google (from http://www.omegahat.org/R/bin/windows/contrib/2.7/)
2.  when loading RDCOMClient  and then SWinTypeLibs  (v 0.5-1) package I get the following error message:

Error in importIntoEnv(impenv, impnames, ns, impvars) : 
  object '‘createTypeVarName’' is not exported by 'namespace:RDCOMClient'
Error: package/namespace load failed for 'SWinTypeLibs'

I have installed both packages from “local zip files” folder, as I have done with all other packages that I use.
My questions:  What am I doing wrong? and could it be related to the fact that I downloaded the package this way and not following the link an the site? 

Thank you and have a great day ahead!
