This is on Windows, I guess. The rw-FAQ says:

2.8 Can I use rw1023 with ESS and emacs?

Yes. The latest versions of ESS (e.g. 5.1.18) come with support for this
version of R, and there is support for interrupting the R process from
ESS (by `C-c C-c').

For help with ESS, please send email to <ESS-help at stat.ethz.ch>, not
the R mailing lists.

This is particular true here, where the problem must be with something
other than R as that worked under (I presume) NTemacs 20.7.
