- Any chance he was using existing icons / shortcuts / link from a previous
install (and now pointing into the void)? Try starting from
c:\path\to\installed\bundle\KDE\bin\rkward.exe

- Start from the command line using rkward.exe --debug-level 4. This should

- Try to specify the location of R, explicitly:
rkward.exe --debug-level 4 --r-executable C:\RKWARDbundle\R\bin\i386\R.exe
(or whereever R is at).

- Does any window show up, at all? Is that literally the whole error message?

- While this _should_ not be a problem, any longer, the safest installation
path has no spaces in any folder name, and all parts of the folder name are 8
characters or less.

- If all else fails, you could try using the custom installer. This can simply
be pointed to KDE and R in the bundle.

Thomas
