this is what I get:

ess-directory-containing-R is a variable defined in `ess-custom.el'.
Its value is "C:/Dokumente und Einstellungen/ojones/Eigene Dateien"
Original value was nil

nil (the default) means the search for all occurences of R
on the machine will use the default location of the R directory
  (inside "c:/Program Files" in English locale Windows systems).
Non-nil values mean use the specified location as the
directory in which "R/" is located.  For example, setting
`ess-directory-containing-R' to "c:" will tell ESS to search
for R versions with pathnames of the form "c:/R/R-x.y.z".

Currently only used when `ess-microsoft-p'.

You can customize this variable.

And I also checked if ess-microsoft-p is true, it is.
