Loading wordnet in R

fayazvf
I ve installed wordnet 2.1  and R 2.11.0 on windows 7.
Whenver i try to load wordnet in R, i get an error
initDict()
FALSE
cannot find wordnet 'dict' directory, Please set the WNHOME variable to its parent.
I have tried setting WNHOME to "C:\Program Files (x86)\WordNet\2.1\dict","C:\\Program Files (x86)\\WordNet\\2.1\\dict","C:\\\\Program Files (x86)\\\\WordNet\\\\2.1\\\\dict".
None of them helps.
Please help me out.
Thanks in advance.

1. WNHOME is supposed to be the environment variable set in your
opearting system (not an R variable).
2. You should set it to the parent of "dict" rather than "dict".

If you want to do that from R, use

Sys.setenv(WNHOME = "C:\\Program Files (x86)\\WordNet\\2.1")

Best,
