There should be a sh.exe in d:\programy\Rtools\bin if that's where you
installed the Rtools. Are you sure you have the path set the way you
think you do? Remember that PATH is an environment variable, and
environment variable settings are local: so setting the PATH in a CMD
window has no effect on R or any other command window. You need to use
the Control Panel to set the default system path, and then restart any
process that needs to see it.
