ESS is currently interpreting S-Plus 7 as an instance of S+6.
The settings in your .emacs need to be something like
;; use the pathname appropriate for your machine
(setq-default inferior-S+6-program-name "/bin/Splus7/cmd/Splus")
And then the command M-x S or M-x S+6 will start S-Plus 7.
There have been several requests for the ability to have an easy way
to access multiple versions of S-Plus on Unix. ESS already has that feature
for R on Unix, and for Sqpe and R on Windows. The mechanism is:
open a .s or .r file in an emacs buffer
on the emacs menu bar, click on the "ESS/Start Process/Other/name" menu item
We are in process of extending that feature to S-Plus on Unix.
