Thank you, Vincent.

As you know, I'm not a windows users either.

However, as it so happens someone just reported a problem
with one of my R packages --- on Windows only --.

So I tried your installation, on our "Windows Terminal Server'
After installation, etc
when I do

     M-x R

I get the error

   "apply: Spawning child process: invalid argument:"

end with an empty *R* buffer
and an *ESS* buffer that looks +- ok,
ending in

(inf-ess finish [S(R), c:/program files/r/r-2.5.0/bin/rterm.exe(nil,nil)]
(ess-multi 0):  inf-ess-start-args=--ess  , comint-..echoes=nil
(i-ess 1): buf=*R*, lang=S, comint..echo=nil, comint..sender=comint-simple-send,
(i-ess 2): buf=*R*, lang=S, comint..echo=t, comint..sender=inferior-R-input-sender,
(ess-setq-vars-LOCAL): language=S, dialect=R, buf=nil, comint..echoes=t, comint..sender=inferior-R-input-sender
(i-ess 3): curr-buf=*R*, comint..echo=t, comint..sender=inferior-R-input-sender,
(ess-multi post inf-ess: start-args=--ess  , comint-echoes=t
(ess-multi 1):  start-args=--ess   
Making Process...Buf *R*, Proc R, Prog c:/program files/r/r-2.5.0/bin/rterm.exe
 Start File=nil, Args= --ess  .


I did leave  ess-site.el  unchanged.

Any hints are appreciated,
