Emmanuel --

Thank you very much for your posting on setting up Emacs and ESS under
Windows.  I had already set these up at work, but I used your instructions
at home and they were very helpful.

One thing that was not included in your instructions that might help:  I
found that I needed to add the path to the rterm.exe file to my
autoexec.bat file.  In other words, if your path statement in your
autoexec.bat file is :


you may need to change it to:


In fact, I think the official Emacs instructions tell you to add
c:\emacs-20.7\bin; to the path statement as well, which I did to my work machine but not to
my home machine, with no apparent difference in function.

Note that if you don't add c:\rw1022\bin to your path statement, you get a message saying:
"Searching for program, no such file or directory, Rterm."
