This is a nice desription.  There are a few small changes I would like to
see.  The DOS window you get when starting R shouldn't be there.  I haven't
Yet figured out why it is there for you.

The only thing I see that should be changed may not actually address
this issue:

Your are referencing the "Emacs" shortcut.  Don't use it.  It is
better to use the "Runemacs" shortcut.  Reason: runemacs avoids the
DOS box when starting emacs.  I copy the runemacs shortcut to my
Desktop and to my startup.  That way emacs is always running and I don't
have to do anything but turn the machine on.

The addpm.exe is no longer needed.  addpm does things to the Windows
registry.  The advantage of not needing it is that you can copy the entire
d:\emacs-20.7\ directory tree to a ZIP drive or a CD and run them on another
machine without touching the registry on the other machine.  This allows you
to run on machines to which you don't have write permission for the registry.
