To follow up:
I believe I had a version mismatch between one of the packages and R.  I made sure to install the latest of all, at which
point jgr.exe launched just fine.  Thanks to Simon and Liviu for their comments.
Just one note: the Windows launcher does not provide any info if it can't reach the 'net (as opposed to listing missing packages as suggested previously).

Yes, thanks, stats-rosuda-devel is where this post should go.

What this means that you have either installed them in the wrong  
library or you have not installed them all. The launcher actually  
tells you exactly which packages are missing so it should be easy to  
install them manually. If in doubt, remove your preferences file  
".JGRprefsrc" (in your home).

If you're still stuck, please tell us exactly your setup (where you  
installed R, the packages etc.). Also try to run JGR with --debug and  
it will create a file C:\JGRdebug.txt with additional information that  
may be helpful.
