xlsReadWrite is a contributed package with a complicated installation procedure. It has a maintainer and a website. Offhand I would guess that you haven't downloaded the proprietary DLL that goes with it, and maybe that the placeholder DLL has not been updated when the number of arguments was changed.

Is there any good reason not to just use the save/load mechanism?
