Hi all,

Just tried to get OpenMx on my Mac. I am running R 2.10.0. Here is the message.

> source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R')
Error in f(res) : invalid subscript type 'list'

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

David

Hi there,

I tried to install Open Mx and get an error message saying:

source('http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/getOpenMx.R')
Fehler in file(file, "r", encoding = encoding) :
kann Verbindung nicht öffnen
Zusätzlich: Warnmeldung:
In file(file, "r", encoding = encoding) :
kann nicht mit 'openmx.psyc.virginia.edu' auf Port 80 verbinden

This is all German sry, it is saying that:
file(file, "r", encoding = encoding) :
cannot connect to
'openmx.psyc.virginia.edu'
on Port 80.
What can I do? Is there any other option to download Open Mx?

I appreciate your help!

Thank you,

Christine

It sounds like there is a firewall somewhere blocking your access to the openmx website when running R. Two alternatives: (1) determine what firewall is turned on and allow an exception for the R program. Or (2) download OpenMx manually from http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/packages/bin/. You'll need to do that in a web browser. Find the platform and R version specific to your machine, download the file, and then in R use the menu "Packages --> Install from local file".
