When I install the windows pcvsuite zip file on the Windows partition using R 2.12.0 (64 bit), I get no problems.

I would suggest going to the page from which you downloaded the software, presumably http://labs.fhcrc.org/pepe/dabs/software.html and click on the contact tab and tell them your problem. Either they will rebuild or supply source.
