xls.getshlib() error in xlsReadWrite package under W7

milton ruser
Dear all,

I installed xlsReadWrite package under Windows 7, and got error when trying
to run xls.getshlib().
Please, see the errors below:

> require(xlsReadWrite)
Loading required package: xlsReadWrite
xlsReadWrite version (cran shlib)
Copyright (C) 2010 Hans-Peter Suter, Treetron, Switzerland.

!! Your installation contains the cran placeholder shlib (dll/so).
Please get the regular shlib (420 KB) by executing the following command:

   xls.getshlib()

Info, forum, issue tracker and manual download at http://www.swissr.org.

BACKGROUND: Our own xlsReadWrite code is free, but we also use proprietary
code
(Flexcel, tmssoftware.com) which can only be distributed legally in
precompiled,
i.e. binary form. As CRAN 'generally does not accept submissions of
precompiled
binaries due to security reasons' we only provide a placeholder and you can
download the binary shlib separately. NO GUARANTEES: We have done thorough
tests
initially and there are integrity checks, but we do _not_ give any
guarantees.
You can check/clone the source code at http://github.com/swissr/xlsreadwrite
,
in case of any issues we are happy to hear about them (bug
tracker/forum/email).
