You need to do more than just install R. Please refer to the EViews documentation for more details.

so, have to write commands to estimate the TVAR in Eviews?? i ask you thgat because when i click in add-ins TVAR, it shows up a table when i have to put variables and lags and so on. I will be necessarily to write comamnds?! or only write top commands to open a connettion to R?

No, you don't need to write any commands. You just need to have R installed and connected to EViews properly.

If there is an R package that estimates them, and you are familiar with calling R routines from within EViews, then yes. But there is nothing currently built into EViews or available as an Add-in.

Try editing the Add-in code. The line that says:

Code: Select all

xput(rtype=ts, name=g) {%g}


Change it to be:

Code: Select all

xput(name=g) {%g}


That might sort it for you.

Yep, unfortunately the R package doesn't return that.

So, its impossibe to know the threshold value and the delay parameter??
How do i know that the threshold variable> thrshold value or vice versa...because i have to explicit in my thesis the delay parameter and the threhold value and variable...

Threfore, the % in each regime what it means? Its the % of the observations of the sample??

It is the percentage in each subsample.
