[R-SIG-Finance] Problem with RBloomberg (not the usual one)

I have a problem with RBloomberg and this is not the usual "no
administrator rights" problem.
I have R 2.7.2, RBloomberg 0.1-10, RDCOMclient 0.92-0
RDCOMClient, chron, zoo, stats: these packages load OK.
Then, trying to connect, I get following error message:
conn <- blpConnect(show.days="week", na.action="previous.days",
1: In getCOMInstance(name, force = TRUE, silent = TRUE) :
Couldn't get clsid from the string
2: In blpConnect(show.days = "week", na.action = "previous.days",
periodicity = "daily") :
Seems like this is not a Bloomberg Workstation: Error : Invalid class string
Anyone encountered this problem?
What is wrong and how can I solve it?
Online, I found just one instance of this problem discussed, and it
was in Chinese:
Thank you for your help!
