[Bioc-devel] tokay1 building error

Hi Astrid,

The problem on Windows seems to be caused by the 'file' field
you have in some of the records in your pwOmics_vignette.bib file.
Looks like a field that is controlled by the Zotero software.
I'm not sure why this field causes problems on Windows and not
on the other platforms though. Some platforms are more forgiving
than others. Anyway if I remove this field from all the records
of your pwOmics_vignette.bib file, the problem goes away.

Hope that helps,
