I have a source package that isn't available as a windows zip file. Can
anyone explain to me how I can install this on my windows R platform?
When I use the following code: 
 install.packages("PReMiuM_3.0.21.tar.gz", type = "source") 

I get this error message: 

* installing *source* package 'PReMiuM' ... 
** libs 

*** arch - i386 
ERROR: compilation failed for package 'PReMiuM' 
* removing 'C:/Program Files/R/R-3.0.1/library/PReMiuM' 
Warning messages:

2: In install.packages("PReMiuM_3.0.21.tar.gz", type = "source") :

Thanks for any help anyone can give me,
