That's a bug in 2.13.0 which has been fixed in R-patched. The easiest
thing is probably to install R-patched (binary builds are on CRAN);
another workaround (which will cause you headaches in the future, so I
don't really recommend it) is to define the environment variable R_HOME
set equal to the path to the R home directory in Windows format with
backslashes. (The headaches come when you upgrade and it points to the

The paths need to contain backslashes in 2.13.0. R-patched will be
happy with the forward slashes you used.
