Mmmm, I think I see what the problem is now. Somehow rwinst.exe didn't unzip
all the directories in the tree under 
D:\Program Files\rw1022\library\MASS\
I had later unzipped those files in
D:\Program Files\rw1022\library\MASS\data
and some, but not all, of the zip files in other subdirectories.

Finishing the unzipping did the job, at least it did on my other machine.

Sorry for disturbing the list!
