That message is probably due to not selecting and running the entire program. It is an SPSS error message that indicates that the command was interpreted as an SPSS command rather than R syntax,

Select the block including the begin and end program statements and click run (or use ctrl-r).

Watch the status bar to see what state SPSS is in.

hi! Does anyone else has also problems to get the R plug-in running? I've installed the newest SPSS19 version including the fix1 ( Furthermore, the newest R-plug-in from the developerworks website and R version 2.10.0. When I run the menu item: R Boxplot startr.exe is started, but nothing happens. Running this simple routine:


results in an error message: line2 print: An unexpected symbol was encountered on an output command.

I've installed SPSS and plug-ins on two different computers, first server2008 R2, second windows 7 professional 32bit desktop system. Both systems reveal the same behaviour, therefore I would exclude some problems with the special machine.

Any idea???? THANKS!!!
