Some more remarks. > myR = CreateCOMObject["StatConnectorSrv.StatConnector"] There is a foreground server and a background server. For the foreground server you have to have a running RGui (or RTerm) with library rcom loaded. Then >> myR = CreateCOMObject["RCOMServerLib.StatConnector"] will allow you to "talk" to RGui from Mathematica and then switch windows and work within RGui. What you are doing gives you a background server. You cannot access this server except from Mathematica. There is no RGui "backdoor", which is very useful for debugging. I am still fixing a few loose ends before this will go public. BTW: I already can get R graphics into Mathematica, and they are embedded like Mathematica graphics. So far, I found no reasonable vector graphics format which R can write and Mathematica can Import. Any suggestions to that respect?
