I managed to install the Rbbg. Now I am trying to follow the manual. I
start with creating a connection to bloomberg. I got an error saying
that Rbbg cannot connect to bloomberg because CONNECTION_FAILURE.
Below is the exact message I got. I have bloomberg anywhere. I am
wondering what might have gone wrong? Thank you.



> conn <- blpConnect()
R version 2.15.1 (2012-06-22)
rJava Version 0.9-3
Rbbg Version 0.4-155
Java environment initialized successfully.
Looking for most recent blpapi3.jar file...
Adding C:\blp\API\APIv3\JavaAPI\v3.4.8.1\lib\blpapi3.jar to Java classpath
Error in .jnew("org/findata/blpwrapper/Connection", java.log.level) :
  org.findata.blpwrapper.WrapperException: Session not started
