I have had the same problem (or at least get the same error msg) using the

spss.get() function from Hmisc using R1.9.1 to read an SPSS file. I think read.spss() from foreign package still works though. Have not tried spss.get() with any other version of R.

YOu should just be able to use read.spss in the "foreign" package.
