I am a newbie.  I had my R upgraded from 2.7.1 to 2.7.2 and in doing so I
decided to install all 2.7 versions under c:\program files\R\2.7 from now on
(2.7.1 is located under .\2.7.1) 

Although I don't like the idea (I am running Vista), I have edited
etc\Renviron.site to contain:


As far as R starting always from the same location, that is,
c:/Users/eduardo/Documents/R, etc\Renviron.site didn't help.  So I wonder
whether someone from the list could help me to:

a) force R to start always from the same location
b) force R to install all new packages in the same location

Many thanks

(too many posts in the subject!).
