The bug is in your download client.  The file on CRAN is called 
miniR-1.bin (and that is the name on the HTML page), and that is what 
miniR.exe looks for.

You haven't told us how you downloaded the files, but are you downloading 
to a file system that does not support long file names?  miniR-1.bin would 
be mapped to MINIR_1.bin, but the FAQ does say you need a file system 
supporting long names.

They do.

Please do check your facts before reporting a bug on your own system to
R-bugs.  In particular, the names *are* on the HTML page you got the files
