3. Installing R under Windows

The `bin/windows' directory of a CRAN site contains binaries for a base distribution and a large number of add-on packages from CRAN to run on Windows XP or later on ix86 CPUs (including AMD64/Intel64(9) chips and Windows x64).

Your file system must allow long file names (as is likely except perhaps for some network-mounted systems).

Installation is via the installer `No value for RWVERSION-win.exe'. Just double-click on the icon and follow the instructions. When installing on a 64-bit version of Windows the options will include 32- or 64-bit versions of R (and the default is to install both). You can uninstall R from the Control Panel.

Note that you will be asked to choose a language for installation, and that choice applies to both installation and un-installation but not to running R itself.

See the R Windows FAQ for more details on the binary installer.
