Do you have one of the environment variables TMP, TEMP, or R_USER
defined? (To find out, go into a DOS window and type "set", or "set |
more" if the list is too long to read all at once.) 

R tries to create a temporary subdirectory under the directory named
by those, in that order.  If the first one found gives the name of a
non-existent directory, you would see that error.
