Even after installing the new beta version of statconnDCOM I still get the error message. Ironically this happens after the add-inn correctly opened an R Window, and I see the loading screen of statconn. Once I click on the close button - I guess I have to click on, right? because if I don't I can't do anything else anyway - I get the aforementioned error message in Excel. "There seems to be no R process connected to Excel".
I can now continue on producing this error message by clicking "connect R" in Excel.

I deinstalled and reinstalled R, RExcel and statconn according to wiki descriptions (twice, for good measure, including rebooting the computer a few times as well). But that hasn't helped.

Someone else here also reported I'm guessing the same error in another thread, so it's not just me.


Here's the debug information:

Dear Christina,

from the information you provided, I can see that rscproxy is installed to

"C:/Users/xxxxxxx/Documents/R/win-library/3.3"

It seems, rscproxy (and also rcom) have not been installed correctly.

See http://autstat.com/index.php/Support/topic/3.html for the installation instructions.

rscproxy and rcom should be in the R installation directory.

Could you please try again and let us know if it works now!

Hi Thomas,

unfortunately that doesn't help.

Here is what happens when I run the installation in R with admin rights (I don't get any error messages):

> install.packages(c("rscproxy","rcom"),repos="http://www.autstat.com/download",lib=.Library,type="win.binary")

If I check afterwards again where the packages have been installed: hasn't changed. That might be the reason for my problems if the files should be somewhere else.

Please uninstall rcom and rscproxy first. Then verify, that the software really has been uninstalled (Look into the folder and see if rscproxy and rcom directories are gone).

How did you run R as administrator?

Christina,

a patch is available under "Download". Please download the StatConnectorSrv.exe and replace the original StatConnectorSrv.exe (typically in c:\Program Files (x86)\statconn\DCOM\bin) with the new one.

Then run the test again and post the DbgView output file.

Thanks.

Okay, uninstalled - had to do it twice, because the files had been installed in two locations, in the documents directory and in the R installation library; in any case, after deinstallation the directories were no longer in the folder.
Reinstalled. Now they are only in the correct directory. But the problem still stands. Same error.

To run as admin, I right clicked R and selected "Als Administrator ausführen".

Thanks! Please try the patch I provided for you (won't solve the problem, but should tell us, where it is).

Just to make sure: Which version of R (32 and/or 64 Bit) do you have installed?

Hey Thomas,

I have both 32 and 64 version of R installed, but I only use the 32 bit one and I should have also installed all other components only for 32 Bit.

I did run the test patch. These are the results:

Just clicking the R in the Testwindow:

[4996] statconnDCOM Installation path is "C:\Program Files (x86)\statconn\DCOM"
[4996] ##--1.1##

[4996] askserver #3

I still get the "run time error '-2147023170 (800706be)': Automation error" message after I click on the close button in the "TEST ONLY".
In the StatConnector Test window it says:
Loading StatConnector Server... Done
Initializing R...Function call failed

Using the R32 button (gives same error message in the end):

sorry to bother you again, but the next try is a special tracing-enabled sctools.dll. Same directory in the installation path.

Available from the download page, please run your test again and send the DbgView output. Hope we now know, where the problem starts.

You're right. The download manager settings did now allow DLL files. Fixed. You should see the file now.

ok, once again. Think we got this nasty bug. And it seems to be a timing/multithreading issue only occuring at a few machines. Should happen faster now...
