Well, it's hard to say what's going on unless I can get on a Windows 
machine and replicate it.  That path is R's temporary directory, so it 
seems the DVI file is either not getting created, it's getting created 
in a different place than it's expected, or something is looking in the 
wrong spot for the .dvi file.  You mention in your original post that 
the .dvi file is created.  Can you confirm that this is true?  Did you 
mean in the temp directory, or in your working directory?  Check the 
.log file in the temp directory if one exists with the same base name as 
the .dvi file in the error message.
