Hi,

I'm now using OpenMx to do some heritability analysis, and met a probelm. When installed the OpenMx on R3.01, it indicated that the OpenMx could just be insatalled on R2.15. And then when I installed OpenMx on R2.15, I could not install some packages such as "psych" , which required to be work in R3.01.

Please help me for how could I solve this problem.

Many many thanks.

No problem with psych or OpenMx on R 2.15.3 on a Mac

I have no problem with either psych or OpenMx on a mac with R2.15.3. We are still working on R 3.0 (and the forthcoming OpenMx 2.0) but as noted this is still a work in progress.

R version 2.15.3 (2013-03-01) -- "Security Blanket"

Depends on your operating system

There have been some posts on the forums about this, Google R 3.0 for more detail. In a nutshell this is still a work in progress and you have a number of options.

If you are running Linux you are presumably compiling from source so should not have any problem.

If you are running Windows you can compile from source. To do this you need to install Rtools. Details of how to do this are available from the R Installation and Administration manual. Alternatively you can run several versions of R in parallel and use OpenMx under 2.15.2 and psych under 3.0.1

If you are using a Mac I have no idea what you do, one of the above I suppose.

Or you could wait patiently for the work to be completed.
