This is an error that is coming from you Java installation, not from R. You may need to investigate modifying your Java environment variables. This might not be the correct mailing list from which to expect advice on Java setup although I seem to rememer seeing advice of this sort offered in the past. Have you done a search of the Rhelp archives?
