I just installed tkrplot in R 2.4.1 and it worked fine. I've never seen the error you're reporting. However, I see what looks like a typo that might affect some systems:

In the tkrplot .First.lib function, I see

>             path <- file.path("libs", .Platform$r_arc, dlname)
>         else path <- file.path("libs", dlname)

On the 3rd line, I think .Platform$r_arc should be .Platform$r_arch. On my system I never execute that line, but if .Platform$r_arch is set on your system, it would likely cause problems.
