The recommended configuration for RPGM Client and RPGM Editor is:
RPGM is also working on Windows® XP, but some DLLs might be missing (Normaliz.dll), make sure that the last SP Pack is installed and that Internet Explorer is fully updated.
RPGM Client and RPGM Editor need the R environment for working, which must be downloaded and installed separately. R is available on the official R Project website: http://www.r-project.org. RPGM works perfectly with the 3.x and 2.x branches of R.
RPGM Client uses LaTeX for generating PDF reports. This is an optional installation as reports won’t be generated if LaTeX is not found on the computer. RPGM Client relies on MiKTeX for this. MiKTeX can be downloaded and installed from the official website at http://miktex.org/download.
RPGM Editor also uses RTools for generating C packages for R. This is an optional installation. Rtools can be downloaded and installed from the website at http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/Rtools.
Download RPGM on the official download page.
RPGM can be installed either as a normal user or with an admin user. If, after the installation and when RPGM is launch, an error message appears, try to install the official Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package as it may contains some required DLLs by RPGM.
You can find the package on the official Microsoft website: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=5555.
Double click the installer file. In some cases, Windows can display a warning message like this one:
This is a standard screen as Microsoft Windows® automatically blocks installers which it doesn’t recognize. As RPGM is a fairly new software, Windows® shows this to inform that it is an unknown program. To bypass this screen, click on the “More info” link below the message, then on the “Execute” button. If RPGM is installed with admin rights, accept the Windows® UAC dialog by clicking “OK”. The installer then executes.
Go through the installer and RPGM will be fully installed.
The first time RPGM Editor or RPGM Client is launched, an option screen will appear. If not, it can be found anytime in the Editor within the “Tools” menu, then “Options…” and in the Client by clicking on the cog in the top right corner of the client, then “Options…”.
