Thanks for the help! I found out that it was a problem with the search path
for R. Reinstalling R seems to have solved the problem. Sorry for bothering
you before having tested that.

You (i.e. Sofia) could do some investigation yourself. It may prove 
informative if you search for init.tcl and check whether it is readable 
(for you as ordinary user). It is supposed to be a plain text file, so 
notepad/wordpad can read it.
