Hello Steffen,
Do you mean you needed to do both those changes to get it to work? Or
either would have fixed your problem, but you decided to do both "just
in case"?

XPtr is just for passing a handle to a block of bytes back to R, that it
can then pass back to your C++ code at a later stage, isn't it? I.e. not
a solution if you wanted to manipulate the data in R.
(I'm asking here in case I've misunderstood the scope of its purpose.)
