Thanks for the suggestions.

I have:

1. upgraded ess to ess-5-1-21

2. edited the .emacs file to remove the correction for c-c c-d under 
windows previously provided by Rich.

3. changed the directory for loading ess file ess-site.el to where that file 
is located.

4. changed the directory for loading the R executable, R*, to where that 
file is located.

5. ran emacs getting this result:

An error has occurred while loading `/home/smc/.emacs':

Symbol's value as variable is void: split

To ensure normal operation, you should investigate the cause
of the error in your initialization file and remove it.  Start
Emacs with the `--debug-init' option to view a complete error

6. ran emacs again using --debug-init' option
Debugger entered--Lisp error: (void-variable split)
  eval-buffer(#<buffer  *load*> nil "~/.emacs" nil t)
  load-with-code-conversion("/home/smc/.emacs" "~/.emacs" t t)
  load("~/.emacs" t t)
  #[nil " 


Hopefully, you will be able to enlighten me as to the next step?
