If you type date at a windows command line does it work?
You can't use system() to run system commands that don't
exist on your system. I don't run windows, and have no
idea what the command/syntax to obtain the date might be.
It was already suggested you use Sys.Date() instead, and
only use system() for system commands not duplicated in R.
