Same behavior on RET?

With pdfs ESS uses vignete R command. Go to the link and do M-: and eval

    (format "vignette('%s', package='%s')\n"
                       (get-text-property (point) 'vignette)
                       (get-text-property (point) 'package))

the resulting string is the literal command used.

For Rnw and R ESS just opens the link:

Do M-x: (get-text-property (point) 'help-echo) and check if the
resulting file exist. I expect your problems come from wrong filenames.

If so, then please check .ess_vignetes() function and see what goes
