Dear Steve,
there is some problem with the cel files you are using as indicated by 
the error:

Wrong number of cells: Expecting: 1178100 and 1A.CEL has: 1102500
Wrong number of cells: Expecting: 1178100 and 2A.CEL has: 1102500

This is an error from APT tools which are unable to read some of your 
CEL file.
Furthermore, you must have an error in the target file used to load the 
data set, since
the software try to read CEL file 3.CEL

FATAL ERROR: Can't read file: 3.CEL

but this is not present in the list of arrays you have indicated in the 

To help you in solving your problem I need to know which are the arrays 
under analysis:
human, mouse, rat
gene, exon arrays

To have an idea of the installation please write in the main R window:

and send the output to me.
