Dear ESS-list,


I have installed XEmacs version 21.4 and very naturally installed the
package ESS 5.1.21 from XEmacs on Windows XP. From the XEmacs 'Options'
menu, I click 'Edit Init File' which is empty and add (require
'ess-site). So the second time I start XEmacs and then I wish to start
an R-session with M-x R. I have trouble to provide a starting directory
M-x R does give "no match". 

If I start XEmacs with a source file with the ending ".R", I get a kind
of syntax highlighting. 

My problem is how to start ESS. Thanks.
