I've been trying to get gWidgets/gWidgetsRGtk2 to run every other month
for a while, but somehow I simply can't figure out what's going wrong.
I tried several distributions of the GTK runtime environment for Windows
described in the package's vignette,
I also included GTK in my Windows PATH.
Yet, when I run 'require(gWidgetsRGtk2)', R complains that the RGtk2.dll
can't be found/loaded (see below). But this file definitely exists. I'm
running R-2.13.0 from a USB Device but made sure that args 'destdir' and
'lib' are set propperly in 'install.packages'.

Learn more about GTK+ at http://www.gtk.org
If the package still does not load, please ensure that GTK+ is installed
and that it is on your PATH environment variable
IN ANY CASE, RESTART R BEFORE TRYING TO LOAD THE PACKAGE AGAIN
