InstallR["RHomeLocation" -> "C:\\Program Files\\R\\R-3.0.1"]

results in a popup box titled "Version Mismatch" saying

Error: R.DLL version does not match (DLL:3.0.1, expecting: 2.14.0).

Does RLink only work with versions of R at or around v2.14?

Update: This is now fixed in Mathematica 10.0.1.

This is an issue on Windows only. We are aware of this, and it is planned to get this fixed in the next release of Mathematica. If I get the fix earlier and it is easy enough to create a patch, I will post the workaround here. As far as I know, there is no such issue with R 3.x.x on Linux. Currently, RLink should work on all 2.x.x versions of R (on Windows and Linux, and also on some Mac machines).

  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries Sorry, can't comment on that. But I am sure that this will be more clear by October, and coming to the Tech.Conference is one way to get a better idea about the time frame for this. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 15, 2013 at 22:51
  • $\begingroup$ ;-) I knew you couldn't (and wouldn't). Nevertheless, I seemed to read some kind of subliminal message between the lines that evoked excitement. $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 16, 2013 at 8:13
  • $\begingroup$ @SjoerdC.deVries Well, let's hope that new versions of Mathematica will be a continuous source of excitement for all of us, and for a long time :) $\endgroup$ Commented Jun 16, 2013 at 12:58
