R Question

Installing R from cmd

Can I configure the R installation from Windows cmd?

C:\R-3.3.1-win.exe /silent


Gives me a standard silent install, but:

C:\R-3.3.1-win.exe /help


gives me no information. Also /? says nothing.

Answer

Solution, first determine the configurations for the installer:

C:\R-3.3.1-win.exe /SAVEINF=config

This will save those configurations in a file named config. To load those configurations on the installer use:

R-3.3.2-win.exe /SILENT /LOADINF=config
