The errors cxh got with R seem to be coming from the fact that R is installed, but not put into the path on windows. I'm trying to figure out how to do that with IzPack right now.

You should not need to add R to the path if it is installed with the installer. If the is installed inside $KEPLER, the RExpression actor will find it.

If not installed inside Kepler, it will need to be on the path (and adding something to the Path permanently is not easy in Windows).

The error is actually with the ExternalExec actor in the 08-CommandLine_2.xml demo. It tries to call R on the command line, which fails if R is not in the path.

R is now added to the path on windows. We are not including the R installation for the mac or linux installer so i'm going to wait for the resolution of bug 3101 before I worry about doing the same for osx/linux.

I'm closing this because right now, the only way to get R to work on linux or mac is to install it yourself and put it in the path. when bug 3101 is resolved, this can be revisited.
