Me too. I have always installed R packages straightforwardly..
and I'm sure that Windows users of R call install.packages() all the
install packages from CRAN mirrors.
So the question to ask, I think, is what's preventing install.packages()
from working in your case -- possibly an Internet connectivity problem
due to a firewall, proxy server, use of https, etc.
I'm sure that others more knowledgeable about these issues than I am will
be able to make more specific suggestions for fixing the problem.
However I have just checked that it works with *http* servers (but not
for any other *https*..)
Thanks for your support,
