Hello, I'm trying to install EBImage on a Windows XP machine, but when I type library("EBImage") I get a pop-up window that has the following error message: This application has failed to start because libgdk-win-2.0-0.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem. The sessionInfo() and traceback() are as follows: > sessionInfo() R version 2.11.1 (2010-05-31) i386-pc-mingw32 locale: [1] LC_COLLATE=English_United States.1252 LC_CTYPE=English_United States.1252 [3] LC_MONETARY=English_United States.1252 LC_NUMERIC=C [5] 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 > traceback() 2: stop(gettextf("package/namespace load failed for '%s'", package), call. = FALSE, domain = NA) 1: library("EBImage") I've already downloaded and installed the GTK and ImageMagick, and I've verified that both applications work. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for your response, Vonn

Hi Vonn I think the key is to add the path to the 'bin' directory of your gtk installation to the system 'PATH' variable; additional details are in the vignette 'EBImage Installation' at http://bioconductor.org/packages/release/bioc/html/EBImage.html I see something like (for an appropriate value of '15' below) > list.files(strsplit(Sys.getenv("PATH"), ";")[[1]][[15]]) [1] "fc-cache.exe" "fc-cat.exe" [3] "fc-list.exe" "freetype-config" [5] "freetype6.dll" "gdk-pixbuf-csource.exe" [7] "gdk-pixbuf-query-loaders.exe" "glib-genmarshal.exe" [9] "glib-gettextize" "glib-mkenums" [11] "gobject-query.exe" "gspawn-win32-helper-console.exe" [13] "gspawn-win32-helper.exe" "gtk-builder-convert" [15] "gtk-demo.exe" "gtk-query- immodules-2.0.exe" [17] "gtk-update-icon-cache.exe" "gtk-update-icon-cache.exe.manifest" [19] "intl.dll" "libatk-1.0-0.dll" [21] "libcairo-2.dll" "libexpat-1.dll" [23] "libfontconfig-1.dll" "libgailutil-18.dll" [25] "libgdk-win32-2.0-0.dll" "libgdk_pixbuf-2.0-0.dll" [27] "libgio-2.0-0.dll" "libglib-2.0-0.dll" [29] "libgmodule-2.0-0.dll" "libgobject-2.0-0.dll" [31] "libgthread-2.0-0.dll" "libgtk-win32-2.0-0.dll" [33] "libpango-1.0-0.dll" "libpangocairo-1.0-0.dll" [35] "libpangoft2-1.0-0.dll" "libpangowin32-1.0-0.dll" [37] "libpng14-14.dll" "pango-querymodules.exe" [39] "pango-view.exe" "pkg-config.exe" [41] "xmlwf.exe" "zlib1.dll" Martin On 08/16/2010 10:26 AM, vwalter at email.unc.edu wrote: > Hello, > > I'm trying to install EBImage on a Windows XP machine, but when I type > > library("EBImage") > > I get a pop-up window that has the following error message: This > application has failed to start because libgdk-win-2.0-0.dll was not > found.
