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.

Read the documentation, especially before posting as the posting guide

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).

    To install:

    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.
