I have had a problem loading the EBImage package which seems to be tied to gtk. I am using Windows XP, and I have sucessfully installed gtk and Imagemagick. Both programs run on their own. I also (apparently) have successfully installed EBImage because the R terminal printed this message: package 'EBImage' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked The downloaded packages are in C:\Documents and Settings\plzimmerman\Local Settings\Temp\RtmpifIost\downloaded_packages updating HTML package descriptions the problem arises just when i attempt to load the library. i use library(EBImage), and receive the following message, not from the R terminal, but from a dialog box. Across the banner of the box, it reads: "100% downloaded: Rterm.exe - Unable To Locate Component". Inside the box, it reads: "This application has failed to start because libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I have gtk installed right on my C drive, and i have located the file in question. It's address is: C:\gtk\bin\libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll. This seems like an address that should not present any problem, i.e. no spaces or anything. I have also checked to see if i had any path issues. on my computer, i go to system properties - environment variables - system variables. there is a variable named gtk whose value is C:\gtk\bin. Any advice will be appreciated. Patrick Zimmerman USDA Forest Service STEP Employee Univ of MN School of Statistics Graduate Student [[alternative HTML version deleted]]

Dear Patrick thank you for your feedback. Can you please provide the output sessionInfo()? Did you make sure to follow the instructions in Section 3 of the vignette 'EBImage installation' and in particular on where to download these add-on libraries and which versions to use?

Thanks for responding. Here's the sessionInfo() output from the R terminal: > sessionInfo() R version 2.9.1 (2009-06-26) i386-pc-mingw32 locale: LC_COLLATE=English_United States.1252;LC_CTYPE=English_United States.1252;LC_MONETARY=English_United States.1252;LC_NUMERIC=C;LC_TIME=English_United States.1252 attached base packages: [1] stats graphics grDevices utils datasets methods base other attached packages: [1] abind_1.1-0 loaded via a namespace (and not attached): [1] tools_2.9.1 As far as downloading the dependencies, I got the GTK+ all-in-one bundle from this url: http://www.gtk.org/download-windows.html. I got the Q16 dll download of ImageMagick from this url: http://www.imagemagick.org/script/binary-releases.php#windows. I followed the installation instructions for Windows from this url: http://www.bioconductor.org/packages/devel/bioc/vignettes/EBImage/inst /doc/EBImage-installation.pdf. I had some difficulty with ImageMagick which were solved by installing Visual C++ 2008 Redistributable Package (x86)<http: www.microsoft.com="" downloads="" details.aspx?familyid="A5C8427" 5-3b97-4ab7-a40d-3802b2af5fc2="">as suggested on ImageMagick download page. Besides the gtk system variable i mentioned in my original email, I also have a system variable entitled path whose value is very long. it begins with C:\Program Files\ImageMagick-6.5.5-Q16;C:\Program Files\SAS\SharedFiles\Formats;C:\Program Files\SSH_SCP;C:\WINDOWS\Downloaded Program Files;C:\Program Files\ATI Technologies\ATI Control Panel; and continues. i did not see any mention of gtk in this path.

Dear Patrick, Which version of EBImage are you using ? It looks like that your system is not able to locate the GTK library. Did you add the 'C:\gtk\bin' directory to the PATH environment variable, as mentioned in the installation guide ? If not, this should fix the issue you are mentioning (do not forget to restart R after doing this).
