[R-SIG-Finance] parallel processing

I tried to use the parallel core again and I get this error message. Note
that the non-parallel version works fine for me and I am using the
optimization feature.

This is how I call the parallel version:

if( Sys.info()['sysname'] == "Windows" )
} else {


This is how I call the serial version:

if( Sys.info()['sysname'] == "Windows" )

} else {
