[R-pkg-devel] Plotrix install bug with Umlauts in path name

I received the message below a few days ago. I have no idea why the
plotrix package should not install properly to a directory with
umlauts in the path name. Apparently other packages do install
properly for the OP. If any package gurus know the answer to this, I
would be happy to hear about it as if there is a problem with the
plotrix package I would like to fix it. Thanks.


Original message

Just wanted to let you know, that installing plotrix on a Windows
machine where my userprofile path has Umlauts fails. Installing into
another directory runs fine.

If you want to look into this, I am happy to provide logs and help where I can.

Cheers, André
