[Rd] #Rscript error on Windows 7 operating system

I've been running some parameter estimation software (UCODE which is maintained by the USGS) that has the capability of running models in parallel on a local network. Each additional processor I can incorporate into the parent-child network helps cut the overall runtime, which is currently on the order of days. When a signal is sent to a child (or slave) processor a series of commands take place, among which some R kriging commands are called from a batch file.

I recently gained access to a new quad-core machine that is running windows 7 and for some reason when the R batch commands are invoked (or called) by the parent (or master) machine the following error message results:

c:\...\>#Rscript KrigCommandsWithAnisotropy_US_Layer1.bat Warning: This script has only been tested on Windows XP. \R\R-2.11.0\library\JGR\jgr.exe was unexpected at this time.

Running the batch file on Windows XP or Windows Server 08 operating systems works OK. However, I did have to change a security setting like so:

Settings... Control Panel... Administrative tools... Microsoft .NET
Framework Configuration... Right Click Runtime Security Policy... Choose
Adjust Security... Next... Local Intranet and adjust to "Full Trust"...

I've been unable to find this security setting in Windows 7, but I'm not sure it is related to the error message quoted above.

I apologize if this is the wrong forum for this kind of request. If I need to repost on R-Help I'll delete it here.
