[R] Removing script file

Colleagues,

(Running R 2.7.0)

I have a script that I want to delete as it completes execution. The penultimate line of the script (before the quit command) is:

        file.remove("Scriptname")
The script is executed as:

        R --no-save < Scriptname

In OS X and Linux this is successful and returns: > > file.remove("x")
> [1] TRUE

and the file is deleted

In Windows XP, it returns:
> [1] FALSE
and the file is not deleted.

I realize that this is an OS issue rather than an issue with execution of the command. Is there some means to delete the script from within R?
