Well, it depends..
If I type (in Emacs) "M-x R [Tab]",
where "[Tab]" means to press the tab (tabulator) key,
Possible completions are:
so you see that I get pretty many installed versions of R ...
and (almost) all are found by ESS automagically at startup.
For that to work they must be in the PATH,
and that's a concept working nicely in Unix-like OSs, but
possibly not in Windoze ... which I now guess is what you've got
