1. Tell us your OS. Well, you are on windows, as we can guess from

2. Tell us your version of R.

3. Rcmd can't be invoked from within R. It is an executable that will be
  ...\your-r-directory\bin .
It will be in there if (a) you have compiled R yourself or (b) if you
choose to install the sources as well from the Setup Wizard.
So you should invoke it from the windows shell. 
The list of files has to be seperated by blanks.
