Hi, Thanks for so great package for us
we have used PTXQC for long time, and it helps us a lot.
But recently, it does not work.
detail is that:
when go to the command:
r = createReport(txt_folder)
it reports a error:
Error in createReport(txt_folder) :
Argument txt_folder with value 'E:ping/shenghuahao/zhangchao/combined/txt' is not a valid directory

Maybe it because of upgrade of package,
So I re-install the package, but there comes another error:

"package ‘yaml’ successfully unpacked and MD5 sums checked

thanks for the feedback!

This sounds like R cannot uninstall YAML, since its being used
Have you tried to update the package using a fresh/clean R console (i.e. no pre-loaded packages etc).

If that does not help, maybe manuallz deleting the package directories in the UserLibrary while R is not running will do the trick.

Let me know if that helps :)
