System Error after installing R package

I am running R 3.2.2 on Windows 8. After installing R packages,

rattle
and
rpart.plot
in RStudio an error message propped up in a separate panel.

Rterm.exe - System Error.
The program can't start because libatk-1.0-0.dll is missing from your computer.
Try reinstalling the program to fix this problem.


Does anybody have any clue as to what this means and how to fix this?

Answer

Thank you all for your inputs. I managed to figure it out.

The problem arose as a result of missing GTK+ file. I'm not exactly sure what GTK+ really is, but I know that GTK+ is a preliminary file needed to install the Rattle Package. Here's the step I took to download the GTK+ file.

  1. First, remove all the tabs opened in RStudio.
  2. Use install.packages to download Rattle package. A window should pop up asking to see if you want to download GTK+. Click Yes.
  3. Restart RStudio.
