```Hello,

I am not seeing errors, except that you haven't posted the code for
pbivnorm. Do you have a variable named T somewhere? Don't abbreviate
TRUE to T in more complex code. Or FALSE to F.

And both functions mycdf and mycdf2 could be simplified.

mycdf <- function(q,logistic=FALSE){
# *********************************************
# Univariate CDF: normal or logistic
# *********************************************
if(!logistic){
pnorm(q)
} else {
plogis(q)
}
}

mycdf2 <- function(x,y,rho,logistic=FALSE){
# *********************************************
# Calling bivariate CDF: normal or logistic
# *********************************************
if(!logistic){
pbivnorm(x,y,rho,recycle=TRUE)
} else {
pbivlogis(x,y,rho)
}
}

As one-liners:

mycdf <- function(q,logistic=FALSE){
# *********************************************
# Univariate CDF: normal or logistic
# *********************************************
if(logistic) plogis(q) else pnorm(q)
}

mycdf2 <- function(x,y,rho,logistic=FALSE){
# *********************************************
# Calling bivariate CDF: normal or logistic
# *********************************************
if(logistic) pbivlogis(x,y,rho) else pbivnorm(x,y,rho,recycle=TRUE)
}

Hope this helps,
