Hi I think what you need to do is start R thus: Rgui.exe --internet2 Or something similar. If you change your shortcut to point to: "C:\path\to\R\Rgui.exe" --internet2 Then R should be able to access the internet (NOTE the location of the " marks is important) Mick -----Original Message----- From: Nunez-Garcia, Javier [mailto:j.nunez@vla.defra.gsi.gov.uk] Sent: 16 September 2003 10:53 To: 'bioconductor@stat.math.ethz.ch' Subject: [BioC] installing BioConductor Dear Sir/Madam, I have recently started using R software on a windows 2000 system.

I am new to the bioconductor and just installed the R 1.7.1 and Bioconductor on my WinXP machine. I followed the instruction from chris bye's A Biologist's Guide to using Bioconductor. Everything was fine until I started to export the normalized data. My test project is test.raw. I did load the Biobase, marrayInput, marrayNorm, marrayplot packages. The following is what I copied from R section: > a <- "a" > b <- "b" > test.var <- cbind("a","b") > test.phe <- new("phenoData", varLabels=test.var) Error in validObject(.Object) : Invalid "phenoData" object: Invalid object for slot "varLabels" in class "phenoData": got class "matrix", should be or extend class "list" > Any suggestion? Thanks a lot for your help, Ying Chen
