To run R commands within Seer, an R enabled version of Seer must be installed as well as the R programming environment. Seer will work with existing installed versions of R on your machine but you will need to set up the path so that Seer can find R (see below). If you do not have R installed on your machine, then you will need to download and install the latest version.
Download the latest production 32 bit version of R from the R homepage:
Once R has been installed, the R bin folder must be included within the systems path. This will allow Seer to find the R dll’s. If Seer can not find the R dll’s, a fatal error will be raised.
This path is typically C:\Program Files\R\R-2.13.0\bin\i386 but will vary depending on the location of your installation and version of R installed.
To find the path, right click on the R icon on the desktop or the start menu and select properties. If you click on the Open File Location button a folder will open which is the bin folder. Simply copy the path and follow the steps below.
To add the path (Windows 7):
Click on the start button
Click on Computer
Click on System Properties
Click on Advances System Settings
Click on Environment Variables
Click on the Path variable under System Variables
Add the path to R to the variable value. Add the value to the end, with a ; (semicolon) separating the previous entry.
