Hi Stephen,

For me R-newest does not work. The message in the *Message* buffer is

  Finding all versions of R on your system...
  R-newest: No version of R could be found.

I run GNU Emacs 22.1.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600) of 2007-06-02
On Windows XP (with ESS 5.3.5).

I have R installed in D:/R and during installation of R I choose to have
version information saved to the Windows registry.

M-x R works for me and inferior-R-program-names has the value "Rterm"
