I noticed your email on the R support page. I am currently using SPSS 21 for mac, and need to install a macro plug-in which requires me o install R 2.14 (I already have R 3.0). When i download the R 2.14 package from the CRAN website, and try to install it on my Macintosh HD, it gives me an error message : “ R 2.14.2 for Mac OS X 10.5 or higher (Leopard build) can’t be installed on this disk. Leopard build of R requires Mac OS X 10.5 or higher. Use Tiger build (available from CRAN) for older systems.” 

I dont understand this, since I have OS X Yosemite on my mac. I tried installing 2.14.0, but got the exact same error message.

Would appreciate your help greatly.
