Answering my own post. I found a page
http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/~ripley/Win64/W64porting.html which has a link to
a 64-bit abridged version of graphviz which has been built for 64-bit

Here's how I installed the package:
1. Extracted the acrhive
(http://www.stats.ox.ac.uk/pub/Rtools/goodies/Win64No_/) to a folder on my
2. Changed PATH environment variable to point to new location of graphviz
3. used biocLite("Rgraphviz") to install the 64-bit binary (note: the
package would not install from source)
4. run test and was able to plot graph according to example code in
Rgraphviz help

Dear Kasper,

I am trying to move over to 64-bit R (using the latest version R 2.12.0). It
seems BioC packages install and work well on the most part. I tried
installing Rgraphviz from source but realized that I would need a 64-bit
version of graphviz itself. It appears that they only provide 32-bit
binaries on their webpage.

I noticed your posts on the graphviz-devel forum earlier this year. Have you
been able to find or build a 64-bit version of the graphviz binaries for use
with Rgraphviz?

Any help would be most appreciated.
