[R] Sweave not found from MikTeX?

Hi, I think about everyone asks the same question as you. A quick and
dirty way to fix it is to copy Sweave.sty from$R_HOME/share/texmf/ to
the same directory as your Sweave/R/TeX files. 

BTW: Would it be possible to add a comment about the above in the
Sweave() help page and maybe even have an argument "copySty=FALSE"
that finds $R_HOME/share/texmf/Sweave.sty and copies it automatically?

Personally, I actually prefer to copy the file this way, because then
I can be sure that the Sweave report will be generated without problem
if I send it to someone else.

About MikTeX: You want to update you TeX-database (or whatever it's
called). Did you go into "MikTeX Options" and did "Refresh Now" under
"File name database"? It's not enough do run "Add..." the path.
