Using a Linux only package in Windows #rstats

Here is some R code for using a R package that has only a tar.gz file available (used to load R packages in Linux) and no Zip file available (used to load R packages in Windows).

Step 1- Download the tar.gz file.

Step 2 Unzip it (twice) using 7zip

Step 3 Change the path variable below to your unzipped, downloaded location for the R sub folder within the package folder .

Step 4 Copy and Paste this in R

Step 5 Start using the R package in Windows (where 75% of the money and clients and businesses still are)

Caveat Emptor- No X Dependencies (ok!)
