Read again: INSTALL says:

Check your path

You need the following in your path:
our toolset
the latex bin directory
zip.exe, unzip.exe, hhc.exe

Do not use spaces nor unnecessary quotes in your PATH variable.

so I think you failed to follow one whole chunk of the instructions!

Surely you are not cross-compiling!  If you were, Rcmd would not work.

Uwe Ligges already told you *not* to unpack in ...\rw1061\library, but
that seems to be exactly what you have done, hence the problem.
