Hi, Please excuse these questions if they're obvious. I'm new to R.

I need to access a Postgres db from R. I'm currently trying RODBC as I spend part of my time on Windows and rdbi.pgsql seems not to support windows at this time.

I unzipped the RODBC win binary download into my library directory and tried to load it using


I get the following error:

Error in dyn.load(x, as.logical(local), as.logical(now)) : unable to load shared library
"C:/PROGRA~1/R/rw2001/library/RODBC/libs/RODBC.dll":   LoadLibrary failure: The specified procedure could not be found.
In addition: Warning message: package 'RODBC' was built under R version 2.1.0 Error: .onLoad failed in loadNamespace for 'RODBC' Error in library(RODBC) : package/namespace load failed for 'RODBC'

The path correctly points to the dll. Can anyone tell me what I'm doing wrong?
