Since you didn't tell us any basic information, we have to guess what your OS
and other details are.  My guess that you're trying to use a file which 
can't deal with.

That would be consistent with using Windows.  On the CRAN site, the 
relating to the mprmpi package has this to say:
Windows binary: 	not available, see ReadMe.
