What did I do wrong? Did I have to connect to R before being able to open a file?

You need to have R installed in order to open R files. Once installed, you'll have to point EViews to your R directory so that EViews can find it. To do this, open EViews and go to Options menu/General Options and then select "External program interface" in the left tree view. Then on the right, look at the Home Path text field under "R". Make sure this path is valid on your system.

By the way, the R Home Path is the R folder that contains things like the "bin" folder, the "library" folder, the README file, etc. On my system, the R path is located at: C:\Program Files\R\R-3.6.2

Thanks. That works. Although there's a tiny bug where the cursor stays as the little running circle while over an open window.
