R: .Rhistory and Rinit.el (now installation of ESS 5.2.2)

you have some incompatibilities in your various initialization files.

check site-start.el and init.el and .emacs (i know you are on Xemacs, but check
for .emacs anyway).

Your two lines
(load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess-site.el")
(require 'ess-site) ; load ess

should be redundant, but the second is pointing to an obsolete version of ESS.
Remove the line (require 'ess-site), as it is no longer needed.

Look in site-start.el and init.el and .emacs for for a place where you set
the load-path to include a reference to 5.1.21.
You may remove that line as we now set the load-path for you as part of ess-site.el.

There may be some other incompatibilities as well.

To confirm that ESS is installed correctly, start emacs with
emacs -q --no-site-file
I think the xemacs startup without any initialization
is the same, but I am not totally sure.
Then manually load ESS from the *scratch* buffer with
  (load "c:/Programmi/Emacs/ess-5.2.2/lisp/ess-site.el")
This will confirm that ESS works correctly.
