 No luck again. The value is
SET R_BINARY=C:\Program Files\R\bin\R.exe

 No it doesn't work.  I get the "C:\ program" is not recognized as an
internal or external command. I made a research on this. The problem is the
rkward part. I tried
"C:\Program Files\R\bin\R.exe" CMD "C:\Progra~1\KDE\bin\rkward.bin.exe"
"C:\Program Files\R\bin\R.exe" CMD C:\Progra~1\KDE\bin\rkward.bin.exe

and both work.

I think this the reason that Prasenjit's installation works, becaause the
path is in C:\KDE (no space).

I changed line 13 to
SET RKWARD.BIN=C:\Progra~1\KDE2\bin\rkward.bin.exe

and it works. But this is not a solution because it is an absolute path.

Yes this works. :)
