And what was that called?  rterm --version tells you.

As it does not on my Windows 2000 system, nor on the Windows 2000 system
on which it was built nor for many other users, this would appear to
indicate a problem with your installation and not with the R binaries.
In particular, the error seems to have occurred in a system DLL and not in

I suggest you compile a debug version from the sources and investigate
what problem might be peculiar to your machine.

One thing we know, but seems implausible: R fails to start (but with a
different error) if the machine has less than 10Mb of RAM.  But Windows
2000 likes 64MB or more.
