I installed the ROracle package and its dependencies under R2.15.1 without any problems.
I recently switched to R3.0.2 and downloaded the zip archives ore-supporting-win-x86_64-1.3.1.zip and ore-client-win-x86_64-1.3.1.zip from Oracle download site.
However the installation failed and loading the package yielded the following error message:
Error: package ‘ROracle’ was built before R 3.0.0: please re-install it
I'd be thankful for any help!
Here are additional details:
R version 3.0.2 (2013-09-25)
Platform: x86_64-w64-mingw32/x64 (64-bit)
The problem here is that the R version you are using is incompatible with the Oracle R Enterprise version you are trying to install.
Oracle R Enterprise 1.3.1 is certified with R 2.15.x.
Refer to the Oracle R Enterprise support matrix for details:
Oracle R Distribution 3.0.x will be certified with upcoming Oracle R Enterprise release - version 1.4.
