Problem installing R package "prob"

Hi guys,
I'm new to R / RStudio and my dev skills are at very low level. For days I'm trying to install the R package "prob".

When I try it with install.packages("prob") I always get this message:

> install.packages("prob")
Installing package into ‘C:/Users/sandr/AppData/Local/R/win-library/4.2’
(as ‘lib’ is unspecified)
Warning in install.packages :

  • package ‘prob’ is not available for this version of R*

A version of this package for your version of R might be available elsewhere,
see the ideas at
R Installation and Administration

So I had a look at CRAN where I got this information:

Package ‘prob’ was removed from the CRAN repository.

Formerly available versions can be obtained from the archive.

Archived on 2022-04-29 as requires archived package 'fAsiaOptions'

I then downloaded the archived package, but when I tried to load it, I always get this information:

> library(prob)
Error in library(prob) : ‘prob’ is not a valid installed package

Can anybody help me by either fixing the problem with installing the package "prob" or maybe you have alternative packages to "prob" which offer me the same functions!

Thanks a lot in advance!

Regards Sandra

Did you install the archived package after downloading it?

Yes, I did try to install the package, but I always get the error message.

What command did you use ?
