Hi all,

Thanks for your suggestions.

1. As I said, the the same package code was running was R.3.1.2 earlier 
and giving no errors... so not sure if it has to do with the package code
2. We checked the permissions issue, with the admin running it and it 
still stalled at the same place
3. Finally, the problem was solved by using the 32-bit platform - it was 
using a 64bit platform and that's apparently why the package was 
stalling (mystery!

We switched the platform to 32-bit and it is now working fine without 
any errors...
