i have a spss portable file which i cannot open in R.
i tried 
File.spss <- spss.get("File.por", use.value.labels=T)

and received:
Fehler in read.spss("File.por",  : 
  Datei »File.por« ist nicht in einem unterstützten SPSS-Format

(in engl.: error, not supported spss format)

then i tried


File <- spss.portable.file("File.por")

and got:

WARNING: slash not found
ans = l832112+JGJJs6tiskYVsGfoVisDRTZekfjY462+52+7,+5+41KLD5+8+2+5+8+2+3K+5ZeXReXjUlRkFehler in readStringPorStream(stream) : 
  kann Speicherblock der Größe 3.3 GB nicht zuteilen

the file is 1023 kb

i can open the file in spss - so it is not damaged or anything.
any ideas?
