 My mistake. When I upgraded the R.app GUI I did not change it's name from R to R64, so the R64 GUI did not get upgraded (and the R 32 bit GUI was replaced by the R 64 bit GUI). I have now rectified the issue and all works.

As a aside, it would be helpful if the R.app 64 bit GUI from http://r.research.att.com/ came out of the package with the name R64 given installing R afresh gives two GUIs with two names and it can lead to confusion.
