This means that you are running out of RAM. You might or might not be
able to get around this problem, depending on your current
configuration. There are some things you can try:
If you have less than 4 Gb RAM, you could add more.
If this occurred in an R session where you had lots of other objects
loaded, you could try again with a new R session, making sure you don't
load extraneous objects (or remove things you don't need and ensure
recapture of memory using gc()).
Note that recapturing memory on Windows isn't as effective as on other
operating systems, as Windows isn't good at handling memory and usually
requires contiguous space for large objects.
If you have access to a computer or server with more memory, that would
be the easiest fix.
