Today I installed R 2.10.0

1. I try to download maptools again.
2. Downloads to a temp subdirectory somewhere.
 > utils:::menuInstallPkgs()
trying URL 
Content type 'application/zip' length 1038205 bytes (1013 Kb)
opened URL
downloaded 1013 Kb

package 'maptools' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

The downloaded packages are in
        C:\Documents and Settings\Jim Burke\Local 

3. Does NOT automatically invoke the zip file. Does NOT unzip.

My zip program is jZip.
When I click on a zip suffixed file, it brings up the jZip program.
So file associations are OK.

Thanks for any suggestions,
Jim Burke
