Just to spell that out, I suspect that you have too old a version of
integrate.zip. What you want is not the latest, but the version in
bin/windows/contrib/Old on CRAN. `Old' because R-1.2.0 is due out this
week, and I have begun to clear the decks.
As a general point, do make sure that compiled packages are at least
as late as the version of R you are using, and when R 1.2.0 is released
on Windows, users will need to update most of the packages: those from
rw1011 will not work in most cases.
