Hi Eugene,
I didn't get the attachment, so I'm not sure what error messages you
are getting. But I think \usepackage{sweave} should be
\usepackage{Sweave} (with a capital S).

> Hi List,
> I have a problem with using Latex and Sweave for creating a document.
> So I downloaded the Sweave manual from
> http://www.statistik.lmu.de/~leisch/Sweave/Sweave-manual.pdf
> and i have tried to replicate the example on pages 4-5, but i encounter the following problem: IT DOES NOT WORK. I can run Sweave, create the .tex file and then when building the .tex file in TeXnikCenter i get all sorts of error messages.
> The syntax:
> Writing to file ex1.tex
> Processing code chunks ...
>  1 : echo term verbatim
>  2 : term verbatim eps pdf
> You can now run LaTeX on 'ex1.tex'
> I have attached the log file with the error messages.
> Initially i had a problem with \usepackage {sweave} but i think i have solved (as it is not mentioned in the log file) it by putting it in the .Rnw file and then i copied the Sweave.sty file in the same folder as my Rnw file.
> I have seen the FAQ section on
> http://www.statistik.lmu.de/~leisch/Sweave/FAQ.html#x1-14000A.12 (and similar posts in the archive) but still i have problems. I have reinstalled R in C:\R-2.8.1 as it says in the FAQ (and one of the posts in the archive) but i still get 15 errors, one of them being a fatal one, as it can be seen in the log file.
> Does anyone have a solution for this problem?
> Thank you very much and have a great day ahead!
