Hi Mary -- the cryptic error message is saying that "I tried to load
Rgraphviz.dll, but could not, because something Rgraphviz.dll depends on
could not be found'. Can you show us (e.g., Sys.getenv('PATH') and
list.files()) that you've done these things correctly:

I think this should be sufficient on 32-bit systems; for 64-bit systems
you'll have to read the README file indicated above.
