You might try downloading the DLL to see if it works for you automagically; I think it's unlikely we will put in code to special case that version in the general release of R, as Microsoft is abandoning it as of July this year.

Thanks Duncan.  I downloaded the files from
extracted, and installed (idndl.amd64.exe); don't think the header
files were copied/moved anywhere.  The error still persists after
restarting the server.

Any other thoughts?  Thanks.
