Hi,

I tried a model last week that was still running after 4 days and was really consuming too much CPU for efficient computer use. I've got an older Windows box that I don't really use for anything and thought I might just let the models run on that to free up my normal machine. But it's not really connectable to the net to download OpenMx - can you install off a USB drive somehow?

Thanks,

Paul

Hi, Paul. You may download

Hi, Paul.

You may download the appropriate binary package from http://openmx.psyc.virginia.edu/packages/bin/windows/contrib/ and save it in your USB drive, say e: drive. Then you may use the following command to install it, e.g.,
install.packages(pkgs="e:/OpenMx_1.0.1-1464.zip", repos=NULL)

Please note that e:\ in Windows is represented by either e:/ or e:\\ in R.

Failed with error: package 'OpenMx' is not installed for 'arch=i386'

Any ideas?

Make sure that if you are

Make sure that if you are running R 2.12.0 then you have downloaded the most recent OpenMx 2.12.0 package. 2.12.x packages are incompatible with 2.11.x and earlier packages. Also, we don't support 64-bit R on Windows yet.
