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.

Only some not so helpful suggestions:

  - update your OS
  - figure out where to patch the 64 bit version, and build a custom one 
for yourself.
