You need to be using R-0.65.1 (or 0.65.0, but that was never officially
released for Windows, and I recall you are a Windows user). ts is a
`standard' package that is part of the R distribution. We do recommend
upgrading to rw0651: there are lots of bug fixes.

If perchance you are using 0.65.1, please let me have more details!

The DESCRIPTION file might help:

Package: tseries
Version: 0.3-0
Author: Compiled by Adrian Trapletti <A.Trapletti at ci.tuwien.ac.at>.
Description: Library for time series analysis
Depends: package ts (included in the R release), white.test needs package 
         portfolio.optim needs package quadprog, get.hist.quote needs 
         package chron.

and congratulations to Adrian on being so comprehensive in the
information given.
