We've had requests from time to time from sysadmins who want a MSI version 
of R.  My sysadmins did recently, and David del Campo made one for R-2.3.0 
using the WiX toolkit.  I've now scripted this, and it is part of the
R-devel and R-patched sources.

Duncan Murdoch is on vacation, and I don't know if we will decide to 
distribute an MSI version.  But in case anyone needs one before 2.4.0 is 
released, I've put up


Note that this is not intended to replace the Inno Setup installer, and 
anyone who needs it will know what to do with it.  (The local need is for 
remote installation/updates using RIS.)
