One way to do this is as follows: Make a shortcut for Rgui.exe (e.g., on your desktop). Right-click the shortcut and select Properties. Go to the Shortcut tab; the Target field should contain something like C:\rw0901\bin\Rgui.exe. 
Add  --vsize v --nsize n  to this line, where v and n are your memory specifications.

I hope that this helps,
