Dear all, 

I am building a R package and I would like to add a vigenette to it. 
I wrote my vignette in Sweave format and put it in the inst\doc subdirectory 
of my source package directory and when I run Rcmd build the pdf file is 
created correcly. I would like now to make the vignette availble for users in 
the menu Vignettes of the Windows Rgui. I have found the following code that 
does this:

if(.Platform$OS.type == "windows" && require(Biobase) && interactive() 
&& .Platform$GUI == "Rgui") {

This code works when I run it within a R session, but I would like that it is 
directly executed when I load my package. Which is the place to put this 
piece of code within the package (building process) to reach this
