I use  hmisc on a Windows 9-x64 machine and it causes an error:

running command 'cd "C:\Users\Renger\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp4IOgfH" & pdflatex -interaction=scrollmode "C:\Users\Renger\AppData\Local\Temp\Rtmp4IOgfH\file1b9482a7388"' had status 127
It also gives an API error 2.

The file is in the directory mentioned in the error message and, in a dos window, I can change to that directory and run pdflatex on the file  without a problem.

I tried to set the working directory to  c:\temp and the tempdir also to c:\temp, but this did not help.
The problem happens in ESS/Emacs and under RStudio.

Any idea what can be the cause? (I searched the internet, but it seems nobody has a solution).
