#162 emulink cannot be configured

emu-r (15)

I downloaded R 2.12.0 and Emu 2.3. I installed the Emu package in R and loaded the package entering
So far so good. But when I try to link the package by typing
, R tells me this:
No configuration available yet.
Default configuration: C:\Program Files\Emu\lib does not work.
Configuration error: Cannot find Emu Tcl libraries in
C:\Program Files\Emu\lib
Please enter the directories seperated by ";" in which
Emu libraries and tcllib >= 1.8 are installed on your system
e.g.: C:\Program Files\Emu\lib
Enter nothing and press return to exit this configuration loop.

I tried, but still the same happens over and over again. Emu2.3 does not have tcllib 1.8, but 1.11. Is that the problem? And how do I solve it?

    Please try to reinstall Emu to C:\Program Files\Emu and not to C:\Program File\Emu2.4, i.e. remove the niumbers in the installation path

    I'm having the same issue on Mac OS X 10.6.8, using Emu 2.3, R 2.13.1 and Emu/R 4.2. I tried emulink() and emulink("/Applications/Emu.app/Contents/lib"), but to no avail. Any insight would be appreciated.

    I have the same problem. I'm on Windows Vista (64-bit), and have the same setup - Emu2.3, R 2.14.1, EmuR 4.2. I tried emulink() and emulink("C:/Program Files (x86)/Emu2.3/lib"), and I keep getting the same error message. Anybody solve this?

    I'm having the same problem (Mac OSX 10.6.8, Emu 2.3, R 2.15.1, Emu Rpackage 4.2). I've tried reinstalling Emu and using an earlier version of the Emu Rpackage, but nothing seems to work. Any help would be much appreciated!
