There is a batch command Rcmd.bat at http://batchfiles.googlecode.com
that when run will find R using the registry and then run the
appropriate Rcmd.exe so that you don't need to change your path or any
other environment variable.
Its a self contained .bat file so just place it anywhere on your
existing path. At the Windows console this command will show you your
Rcmd.bat build ...whatever...
If your path is not already set to find Rcmd.exe then Rcmd.bat can be
abbreviated to just Rcmd in the above line.
