[AniMov] I found the problem! :) FW: problem loading Hore Range plugin for QGIS

Dear Giovanni,

I have found the problem. I used the newest R (-2.12.1), and in this the R.exe and R.dll have been put in a separate I386 folder in the BIN folder. I have now removed the newest version of R and replaced it by R-2.10.0, which has no I386 folder in its BIN.

Obviously the code in the Home Range Plugin is looking for the R.dll in the BIN folder, but not in the I386 folder inside the BIN in the newest R version.

So for new users like me, there should be a notification/warning on http://www.qgis.org/wiki/HomeRange_plugin#State_of_the_art NOT to use a newer version of R than 2.10.0 in windows (I am using windows 7 ultimate).

Now I am looking forward to really use the plugin for Home Range Analysis of our otter data. Thanks for making this open source software available!

Best wishes,

Onderwerp: problem loading Hore Range plugin for QGIS

Dear Giovanni,

How are you? Remember me? Friend of Lorenzo. I noticed you came a long way with the open source GIS developments. Nice.

For our VHF and GPS tracking work the HomeRange plugin for QGIS looks very promising to me (http://www.qgis.org/wiki/HomeRange_plugin#State_of_the_art). I have tried to install it following correctly the installation requirements on my windows 7 PC.

It is however a pity that I get all the time the error messages shown in the attachments. I have set R_HOME manually to the ~\BIN\I386 folder, but also to the root of these C:\Progra~1\R\R-2.12.1. Neither of these settings works.

Therefore I like to ask you if you have any idea, what might be wrong here.

Your help is much appreciated.

Best wishes,
Addy de Jongh,
