[ESS] Using ESS with S-plus 8.1

I'm working on a project that is in S+ 8.1, and I am using Windows 7 with
the latest packaged ESS from Vincent. The folder to splus.exe and sqpe.exe
is in PATH.
Is there anyway to get that version of S+ running in ESS?
R works no problem. S+, however, is nothing but trouble.
M-x S tells me to run from icon, then use M-x S-existing.
Doing so with M-x S-existing causes emacs to hang up and crash.
M-x Sqpe lets me select a starting directory, but then gives the error
'spawning child process: invalid argument' and nothing happens.
I have tried adding these lines of code to my .emacs file (based on some
outdated mailing list threads), but the result is the same:
(require 'ess-site)(setq-default inferior-S-program-name "C://Program
inferior-Sqpe-program-name "C://Program Files
Note: I have tried with single slashes as well.
I get the same result if I do S+6, Sqpe+6, etc.
Does anyone know if this is even possible? I am an emacs fiend, so it
drives me crazy that S+ won't work in ESS for me.
Thanks for any help!
PS - I am in the process of porting the code to R, but it needs to be
utilized in the interim. So, unfortunately, just using R is not an option
