I don't know for sure what your are talking about. A common fix would be to
send a diff. Could you do that?

Works for me in the Makefile.win

| This is diagnosed by adding a line to Makefile.win:

I would recommend using ~/.Rprofile which strikes me as easier.

Could that be a Win7 security setting or something like it?

I think I used the same combination with success.
