Dear all,

there has been a thread on missing Rd.sty, when converting Rd-files 
to DVI-files, see 

This problem could be solved by editing Rd2div.sh manually, but then 
I got the following error message:

 LaTeX Error: Command \middle already defined.
               Or name \end... illegal, see p.192 of the manual.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.
l.45 \newlength{\middle}
! Missing $ inserted.
<inserted text> 
for the full message see <http://www.metaanalyse.de/rd-error.txt>

Again, there has been a thread on this topic at 

Has anybody encountered the same problem? 

I am using R1.9 on a Windows 2000 system and a fully updated MikTeX. 

Any help will be appreciated!
