The help page for ess-rterm-versions says

locations other than in ../../rw*/bin/Rterm.exe, relative to the
directory in the `exec-path' variable containing your default location
of Rterm, you will need to redefine this variable with a
`custom-set-variables' statement in your site-start.el or .emacs
You can customize this variable.
If the help page is up to date with the code, it seems that ESS is
looking in ../../rw**, where R used to reside. Now a days, Rterm.exe
has the location ../../R/R-2.2.1/bin/Rterm.exe (relative to Emacs
eing installed in c:\program files). My lisp abilities are missing,
but I assume this would be a very easy bug fix. I suggest keeping the
search in the old location. For now, I have just used inferior-R-
