What example are you trying? The code in ?trkplot works for me.
However, it looks to me like that piece of advice in the rw-FAQ about
no spaces in your path has come back to bite you (I of course do not
have such spaces). I think this should be
.Tcl(paste("load", shQuote(file), "Rplot"))
or some such.
