Hi Pedro,

I don't see these issues on today's build report, so they may have been resolved. If you see the issue again, let us know.

Dear Bioc-Devel

I have a couple of packages (CexoR, fCCAC) failing the Windows-build due to

Warning in system(paste(shQuote(texi2dvi), "--version"), intern = TRUE) :
  running command '"C:\PROGRA~1\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\x64\texify.exe" --version' had status 1033
Warning in system(paste(shQuote(texi2dvi), if (quiet) "--quiet" else "",  :
  running command '"C:\PROGRA~1\MiKTeX\miktex\bin\x64\texify.exe" --quiet --pdf "CexoR.tex" ' had status 1033
Error: processing vignette 'CexoR.Rnw' failed with diagnostics:
Failed to locate 'texi2pdf' output file 'CexoR.pdf' for vignette with name 'CexoR' and engine 'utils::Sweave'. The following files exist in working directory 'F:\biocbuild\bbs-3.16-bioc\tmpdir\Rtmpkf5YYz\Rbuild42143e2f6b79\CexoR\vignettes': 'CexoR.Rnw' (6938 bytes), 'CexoR.tex' (14846 bytes)
--- failed re-building 'CexoR.Rnw'
I think this is happening in other packages as well. Could please provide advice?
