[R] Packaging: Doubt in relation with "R CMD Rd2pdf packagename"

This looks like a PATH problem.  Most likely Miktex isn't where you
told R to find it.

FInd out where miktex is by typing pdflatex in the Start button search box.
Right click on it when it appears and then click properties.
The properties window has a Location field.
The value in the location field is what you need to put in your PATH.

The change I noticed in the past year is that pdflatex is no longer in
It is now in miktex\bin\x64

Here are some possibilities.  The 8.3 names are available from windows.
In the MSDOS CMD window, enter dir/x

C:\Program Files (x86)\MiKTeX 2.9\miktex\bin

In this way I obtain a pdf manual usind "R CMD check packagename", but it ignores the \code{\link{function.name}}... I mean the function.name does not appear as a hiperlink although I use \link in the rd file.
