[R] Running scripts automatically from Rgui (Windows)

I am trying to get a script to start automatically
when I run the GUI version of R version 1.9.0, started
from a .bat file (WINDOWS), but I'm getting strange

In version 1.8.1 I was able to run a script
automatically by copying the script into the file
.Rprofile and running Rgui from a .bat script, but in
version 1.9.0 I'm getting errors like:

Error in inherits(x, "factor") : couldn't find
function "winMenuNames"
In addition: Warning message: 
In the method signature for function "contents", class
"environment" has no current definition in:
matchSignature(signature, fdef, where) 
Error in library(Biobase) : .First.lib failed

Does anyone know if anything changed in version 1.9.0
that could explain these errors?



P.S. Below you find the script I use. %1 will contain
the script that I try to run...

@echo off
copy %1 .Rprofile > copy-output.txt
IF "%1" == "" GOTO Continue
set %1=%2
cat.exe > GS_R_in.txt
"C:\Program Files\R\rw1090\bin\Rgui.exe" --no-save
cat.exe < GS_R_out.txt
del GS_R_in.txt GS_R_out.txt copy-output.txt .Rprofile
