installed on the BioC servers to create the xps binary. Thus you need to

where you can find it under "System Requirements".
However, please note that currently xps works only on Windows XP but not
on Vista or Windows 7. The reason for this is that R is compiled with
MinGW while root is compiled with VC++. I am trying since some time to

Sadly, until now I did not receive any answer which could help me to
solve this problem.
