No Comments

The following is a quick four step installation for R and RCommander:

1. Download R for windows here.

2. To install R Commander, at the R command prompt issue the command:

      install.packages(‘Rcmdr’, dependencies=TRUE)

3. R Commander works best with single-document Rgui interface (SDI). Since the default installation is multiple-document interface (MDI), you can change the Rconsole file in R’s /etc directory to enable SDI. Look for the lines below in the file. 

     ## Style
    # This can be `yes’ (for MDI) or `no’ (for SDI).
    #MDI = yes
    MDI = no

4. To load R Commander issue the command at the R command prompt : 

     library(Rcmdr)
