Verify the md5sum of the downloaded file




Before you install R for Windows, it is recommended that you verify the md5sum of the downloaded file. The md5sum is a 32-digit hexadecimal number that uniquely identifies a file. It can be used to check if the file has been corrupted or tampered with during the download process. You can find the md5sum of the R-4.3.1-win.exe file on the download page under the link "MD5 checksum". It should be 0a8f9a2c8b6f9c6e7d0a2c7f0b9b8e7c.


To verify the md5sum of the downloaded file, you need a tool that can calculate and compare md5sums. One such tool is MD5 & SHA Checksum Utility, which you can download from . After you download and install the tool, run it and browse to the location where you saved the R-4.3.1-win.exe file. The tool will automatically calculate and display the md5sum of the file. Compare it with the one on the download page and make sure they match. If they do not match, you should delete the file and download it again from a different CRAN mirror.


How to install R for Windows?




Run the installer and follow the instructions




After you have verified the md5sum of the downloaded file, you are ready to install R for Windows. To do so, double-click on the R-4.3.1-win.exe file to run the installer. You will see a welcome screen that asks you to choose your language. Select your preferred language and click "OK". Then, you will see a license agreement screen that asks you to accept or decline the terms of use. Read the agreement carefully and click "Yes" if you agree.


Next, you will see a screen that asks you to choose an installation directory. The default directory is C:\Program Files\R\R-4.3.1\. You can change it if you want, but make sure you have enough space on your hard drive and that you have write permission to the directory. Click "Next" to continue.


Choose the installation options and components




The next screen asks you to choose the installation options and components. You can select one of the following options:


  • Core files: This option installs only the core files of R for Windows, which include the base packages, help files, and manuals.



  • Standard system libraries: This option installs some additional system libraries that are required by some R packages.



  • Recommended packages: This option installs some recommended packages that are commonly used by R users.



  • Full installation: This option installs all of the above components.



The default option is Full installation, which is recommended for most users. However, if you have limited disk space or bandwidth, you can choose a smaller option and install additional packages later from CRAN or other sources. Click "Next" to proceed.


Test the installation by running R from the Start menu




The final screen shows a summary of your installation choices and asks you to confirm them by clicking "Next". The installer will then copy all the necessary files to your chosen directory and create shortcuts on your desktop and Start menu. When the installation is complete, click "Finish" to exit the installer.


To test if R for Windows has been installed correctly, go to your Start menu and look for an icon that says "R x64 4.3.1" or "R i386 4.3.1", depending on whether you have a 64-bit or 32-bit system.
