But who said `SJava.dll' was the `specified module'? Hint: it is most
likely not, but also you are trying to load a DLL built under R 1.6.2 into
R 1.9.1 and that is likely to result in such a message.

Do learn to read ReadMe's! That one says
SJava_0.65a.tar.gz modified sources
SJava.zip build under R1.6.2
The sources here will build under R 1.6.x and R-devel (1.7.0-to-be).
Sjava.zip -- unzip in ...\rw1062\library.
and note, not rw1091.
That was a private area, and I have deleted it. There is a version of
SJava in the public area http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/RWin, but do
practice assiduously your new-found skills at reading ReadMe files.
