I have the same problem.  I also get the same message when trying to use
C-c C-x (ess-execute-objects) or C-c C-t command RET (ess-execute).

- C-c C-v (ess-display-help-on-object) seems to work without a flaw.
- C-c C-l filename RET (in the *R* buffer) when the file `filename' has not
been created with C-c C-d or its buffer has been killed, also works.
- C-c C-n or C-c C-r in a R source buffer also works.

I have MS Windows NT 4, NTemacs 20.7, ESS 5.1.20 and R 1.4.1 (installed
under M:/RWin/rw1041).  The PATH contains M:\RWin\rw1041\bin.

The relevant (I hope :-) part of my ~/.emacs file is:

;;; **** ESS ****

(load "d:/ess-5.1.20/lisp/ess-site")
(add-hook 'ess-mode-hook 'turn-on-auto-fill)
(setq ess-source-directory
      (lambda () (expand-file-name (concat ess-directory "src/"))))

Confirmed (I have rw1041).

Confirmed (my R is M:/RWin/rw1041/bin/Rterm.exe).

I get exactly the same behaviour.

This results in the message "No ESS processes running."

This gives the "No ESS process is associated with this buffer now."
message (as does C-c C-r).

As mentioned above, I run NTemacs 20.7.
