At first make sure that WinEdt is installed and registered.
Then, please start R with a right click (and choose start with 
Administrator privileges - don't know the exact english translation) and 
reinstall RWinEdt. Everything should work after that.

I just found out that there might be a minor problem with unregistered 
versions of WinEdt - and a fix will be committed shortly (but not that 
important, because people who do not own a copy can make use of other 
editors such as Tinn-R, which is better supported than my RWinEdt 
extension, I hope...
