If you're quick you could check and tell us whether this is fixed in 2.0.1, see

http://cran.r-project.org/bin/windows/base/rpatched.html

In particular, this stuff from the CHANGES file could be relevant:

"We have increased the chances that installing a source package from an explicit path with spaces in will work, so e.g.

    R CMD INSTALL "/Documents and Settings/myname/Source Files/mypkg"

will probably work -- it is still not recommended. You can also get away with backslashes here, but forward slashes are safer."
