Thanks for the answers !

I finally achieved to install the package on R 2.7.2 but not on more 
recent versions.


did not work , it tells that glmmADMB is not available.

I dowloaded the .zip file and installed it from R then replacing the two 
files from the both.zip (as indicated on :

But when I try to fit a model I got this message:


'C:/Users/thomas' n'est pas reconnu en tant que commande interne
ou externe, un programme ex‚cutable ou un fichier de commandes.

execution failed with error code 1

I don't understand why ...

I heard about MCMCglmm and I will try it.
Do I need to fit the overdispersed version of the Poisson model with 
another function, lmer for example ?
And what is it for ?

Thanks ...
