[ESS] how to make ESS open 64-bit R instead of 32-bit R?

Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1
on a 64-bit machine
The first part of my environment PATH reads like this:
C:\Program Files\R;C:\Program Files
(x86)\ImageMagick-6.8.9-Q16;C:\Windows\system32;C:\Windows; . . . .
and nothing about R appears anywhere else in my path.
My user path reads like this:
When I open an .R or .Rnw file and execute a line of code, ESS opens up
my 32-bit version of R. Usually that has been fine, but now I have
projects that need higher memory.limit(). I'd like my 64-bit version to
open instead. How can I accomplish that?

Early success is a terrible teacher. You’re essentially being rewarded
for a lack of preparation, so when you find yourself in a situation
where you must prepare, you can’t do it. You don’t know how.
