1) rwinst   
Brian Ripley has provided me a new version of 'rwinst.exe' which
should solve the signaled problem (installing in the root of the hard-disk).
It should be available tomorrow from Wien (and in few days from the other

2) gif
There was some problems in rw0641. It used to work before and it should
work again in rw0642 (at least, it does on my system). So, please,
if you need it, follow Brian advice: update to 0.64.2.

3) metafile
Can someone send me some code which reproduce the problem. I have just
now tried with some of the demo plots (demo(graphics) and demo(image))
without experimenting problems. What happens if plots are sent directly
to the metafile (not copied from a running window device)? I.e.,
> win.metafile(height=4,width=4)
> hist(rnorm(100))
> dev.off()
should save in the clipboard the histogram as a metafile.
