Installing R package in BlueSky Statistics v10

The R executable and packages that ship with BlueSky Statistics is located in the following parent folder by default

  • On Windows Drive Letter\Program Files\BlueSky Statistics\10\resources\package\R-4.1.3 -On Mac

You may have changed this, in that case the parent folder would be
