Gosh -- I replied to the OP who spammed Romain and me at home as well as
the list ___without being subscribed to the list___ so it never made it.

  First of all, I want to thank you for all your great works on Integrating R
  with C++ (Rcpp, RInside, etc).
  They are very useful to me. Indeed, thank to RInside, Rcpp and the examples
  from the packages, I managed to call R from my Qt C++ application. It compiles
  and works very well on my 64-bit debian squeeze machine.
  But the problem occurs when I try to deploy it on my win32 machine.
  I also use Qt (version 5.2.1 mingw4.8 openGL) and get this error while
  debugging :

  int main(int argc, char *argv[]) {

  >>>>    RInside R(argc, argv);              // create an embedded R instance
      Signal : SIGSEGV (Segmentation fault)
        (code continues)...

  when I try to print my argument variables' value, it shows :

      R : @0x28fe8c
      argc : 1
      argv : 1 element :
      argv[0] : "C:\Users\Maison\Desktop\Minh\R_embedding_win32\src\helloworld\gnu32\debug\helloworld_debug.exe"

  Why is it working on linux (where argv[0] yields "./unix/debug/helloworld_debug") and not on windows ?

  Thank you in advance,

  Looking forward to hearing from you,

  Best reagrds,
