My guess is that they're "non-tk Microsoft windows". From an rterm.exe
--- Please select a CRAN mirror for use in this session ---
(In ESS, the process hangs here and the window that usually pops up with
the mirror sites is nowhere to be seen.)
I select the first mirror, and next the package listing pops up in a
window. I select the first package:
Content type 'application/zip' length 34412 bytes
package 'aaMI' successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked
The downloaded packages are in
C:\Documents and Settings\Administratör\Lokala
updating HTML package descriptions
 ".GlobalEnv" "package:methods" "package:stats"
 "package:graphics" "package:grDevices" "package:utils"
 "package:datasets" "Autoloads" "package:base"
No "package:tcltk" to be seen.
