I am trying to use the **R package glmmADMB to run a zero inflated model
but I am having problems installing it. Since I tried to instal the
glmmADMB package in R version 3.0 and it said that it wasn't available I
download the R version 2.13.2. However; w**hen I install the package
according to instructions on the website: **install.packages("glmmADMB",
repos="http://r-forge.r-project.org")  I get the message that R cannot
connect to r-forge repository. I download the  file available in
http://glmmadmb.r-forge.r-project.org/repos/src/contrib/, and I am trying
to install the package using the install packages from local files and I
get the following error message:

Error in gzfile(file, "r") : cannot open the connection
In addition: Warning messages:
1: In unzip(zipname, exdir = dest) : error 1 in extracting from zip file
2: In gzfile(file, "r") :  cannot open compressed file
'nbmm.exe/DESCRIPTION', probable reason 'No such file or directory'

I have also tried the following option >
install.packages("glmmADMB_0.7.2.10.tar.gz",repos=NULL, type="source") and
I get the following error message:

Installing package(s) into ‘C:/Users/ADRIANA/Documents/R/win-library/2.13’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)

ERROR: lazydata failed for package 'glmmADMB'
* removing 'C:/Users/ADRIANA/Documents/R/win-library/2.13/glmmADMB'

**Could ** you please  provide any insight as to  how to succesfully
install the glmmadmb package? *

* I'm using a windows 7  PC 64b  R version 2.13.2
